08 Mar 12. F-16s now blending biofuel and JP-8. Two F-16 Fighting Falcons are successfully flying on biofuels in a joint field service evaluation by the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio and the Ohio Air National Guard’s 180th Fighter Wing. Other airframes, including the C-17 Globemaster III, have been certified for unrestricted use of biofuel in a 50-50 blend with Jet Propellant 8 (JP-8) petroleum, but the testing is the first evaluation of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, US Air Force (USAF) officials announced on 5 March.
