10/22/2010 - EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Senior Airman Jacob Prine checks the fuel connection to a F-15 prior to a flight test of new environmentally-friendly fuel Oct.22. Aircrews from the 46th Test Wing and Air Force engineers evaluated flight parameters using a blend of standard JP-8 fuel and hydro-treated, renewable jet biofuel. This was the second test conducted at Eglin; an A-10 fuel test proved sucessful results in March.The Air Force is working toward an ambitious goal of changing half of the continental U.S. jet fuel requirement to alternative fuels by 2016.
