Biofuel powers airline flight

A while back I talked about Continental Airlines flying a test flight with the plane powered with a biofuel. Yesterday they successfully conducted the flight. Click here to view the news piece.

Hopefully they can produce this new fuel at a price much lower than oil based jet fuel and this will lead to a reduction in airfares and fuel surcharges.

I can dream can't I?
