This is a terrific article by the U-T San Diego’s Jeanette Steele. It is a reminder of the great things this country used to do. . . like the space program. The Navy’s initiative on biofuels is something to take pride in!
From the article, Pilot Lt. Cmdr. Jason Fox talked to reporters before heading out to fly his “green flight.”
Initially, he said, he had questions about biofuel’s safety and performance. But he’s been convinced by reported test results.
“I’ve been in the Navy 13 years, and I’ve never been involved in something this historic,” Fox said. “I’m hoping someday I’m going to look back and this will be the point where we turned away from dependency on fossil fuels. There’ve been many steps that Navy leads the way on, and I’m hoping this is one of those steps.”
