7334Commercial aircraft flight partial on biofuel
- Feb 24, 2008The first flight by a commercial airline to be powered partly by biofuel has taken place.
A Virgin Atlantic jumbo jet has flown between London's Heathrow and Amsterdam using fuel derived from a mixture of Brazilian babassu nuts and coconuts.
Environmentalists have branded the flight a publicity stunt and claim biofuel cultivation is not sustainable.
(I guess that some will never be satisfied.) EdFor more info see link:
