Virgin Atlantic is going to make a very special test flight next month: the tanks of one of their 747s will be filled with biofuel.
Supposedly, this is the first commercial airline to ever do this. According to the shy and retiring Richard Branson, this demonstration “will give us crucial knowledge that we can use to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint.”
Fine. But I notice that this “test flight” will have no passengers on board. Hmmm.
