737fuel loading.jpg COkellner-pilots.jpg For two hours this afternoon, Continental Airlines will undertake the first US biofuel flight test in the skies ab ove Houston. The airline will use one of its 737-800s (ship 516) powered by twin CFM56-7B engines. The number two engine will run on a mix of jatropha and algae derived biofuel. This will be the first time a twin-engine aircraft will be used for a biofuel flight.

Special thanks to Megan Kuhn for the photos of Continental CEO Larry Kellner and the pilots prior to the flight in Houston moments ago.
