Sure, we've shown you plenty of jet engines powered by
before, but one thing separates each of them from our latest find: they were all operated on the ground. An L-29 military
aircraft powered solely by 100 percent biodiesel has now been successfully flown over Reno, Nevada. Biodiesel Solutions
and Green Flight International
collaborated on this project, which has as its goal to reduce the impact that jet travel has on the environment. Before the machine was taken into the air, extensive testing was performed on the ground with various biodiesel and jet-fuel blended concoctions. Finally, the pilot and crew deemed that the machine ran as normal using B100 and this performance was taken
17,000 feet above ground. Well done!
