EA6B Prowler Flies on Biofuel

An EA-6B Prowler successfully completed its inaugural biofuel flight , continuing the Navy’s move toward energy independence.

The aircraft, from the “Salty Dogs” of Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 23, flew on a biofuel blend of JP-5 aviation fuel and camelina oil. The camelina seed contains 30 to 40 percent oil.

The Prowler is the first aircraft in the electronic warfare category to fly on a biofuel blend.

Additional aircraft scheduled for biofuel testing include the AV-8B Harrier and the Fire Scout unmanned helicopter.
