Default Cleaning the Oceans and Flying on Waste

http://cafe.foundation/blog/cleaning...ying-on-waste/

Summary: An Aussie pilot flying to Alaska in an RV-9 converted to burn diesel made from recycled plastic

Has this been posted here yet? I am surprised if not. Seems like a great worthy cause. I wish them success on promoting their solution. It's a crying shame how we are polluting our oceans.

Default Diesel RV9

There was another RV9 diesel with the same engine that made the cover of one of the mags a few years ago. It lived near Las Vegas.
