A "Greener, cleaner, quieter, smarter" giant in the sky.
An Airbus A380 flew this Friday from Filton, near Bristol, UK, experimenting a new synthetic fuel : a GTL (Gas To Liquid) based fuel.
This new synthetic fuel, which emits less pollutants, is intended to replace kerosene.
"Greener, cleaner, quieter, smarter" is the motto we could read on the fuselage of this giant of the sky.
Airbus is planning a first flight 100% powered by bio-fuels in 2009.
Let's hope Boeing will take it as a challenge, so we will compete to make the "Greenest, cleanest, quietest and smartest" planes ... !
