Virgin Atlantic sets early 2008 for jet biofuel debut

Richard Branson set early 2008 as a time for Virgin Atlantic, his airline to trial biofuel in a Boeing 747 flight at a meeting of Mortgage Bankers (its got to be more interesting talking about biofuels than mortages, Dickie*, but think of your audience).Reuters quotes him as saying:

In the meantime, Virgin will be conducting a test jet flight on renewable fuels. “Early next year we will fly one of our 747s without passengers with one of the fuels that we have developed,” Branson told the annual conference.

Hat tip to Product Reviews
Its good to see that there is some clarity in Sir Richard’s decision to trial about half a dozen biofuels earlier this year…

*Dick is the UK contaction of Richard, so is Dickie.
