The pilot of the tailwheel-equipped Pitts departed from Runway 3 at the airport in Farmville, Virginia, flew out to the aerobatic practice box, completed his practice, and returned to the airport.

Making jet fuel from seawater

Researchers from The University of Manchester in England are exploring a new way to produce the next generation of bio-based jet fuels using seawater. Scientists have discovered that a bacteria species called Halomonas, which grows in seawater, provides a viable “microbial chassis” that can be engineered to make high value compounds. This in turn means products like bio-based jet fuel could be made economically using production methods similar to those in the brewery industry and using renewable resources such as seawater and sugar, according to researchers. The breakthrough behind this approach is the…
