    I am directly under the flight path of Prestwick airport whcih is extensively used for crew training. Often I can smell kerosene from the engine exhaust as they pass over.

    Can I now expect the smell of cooking “Big Macs” or “KFC” if this becomes popular with airlines !

    Amazing that burning a carbon based biofuel can emit 90% less carbon than an oil based fuel?

    Clyde, I expect that its the smell of cooking food not the hot oil that makes the smell.
