Stewardess, Why Does This Plane Smell Like French Fries?

For a state focused in industry dominance in aerospace and clean tech, the marriage of the two seems like an obvious step. That’s one of the reasons why it’s exciting to see Boeing so focused on developing commercial airlines that can fly using biofuels.

The original problem, of course, was that at high altitudes where the temperatures drop, the biofuels were freezing…and 30,000 feet up is not the time to have your engine stall. But those challenges have been overcome, and it seems now like the problem is more feedstock than anything else. It would be great to see leaders in both these industries in Washington state work together to solve the remaining issues. A 787 built our of composite and flying with biofuels? Eat that, Airbus! Or rather, don’t eat it and let us convert it into biofuels…

    Whoa there pilot, the gender segregated days of flying the friendly skies are long gone. Please ask your “flight attendant” of any gender about the french fry smell.
