      The 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.) Ed
