I just heard about this too.

Very interesting. And this was running in a 747. Don't worry, they were only running the one engine on veggie oil.

Pretty amazing though that it's the airline industry trying this, not just some guy hanging out behind Chinese restaurants trying to fuel up his VW Rabbit!
