2016, July 29th – Royal Netherlands Air Force first to operate F-16 Fighting Falcon on sustainable aviation fuel, supplied by SkyNRG

For the coming two weeks, one F-16 Fighting Falcon of the Royal Netherlands Air Force will operate from Leeuwarden Air Base on a 5% blend of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), supplied by SkyNRG. This is part of an initiative of the province of Friesland, where the entire community will travel fossil free for the duration of two weeks. The Dutch Ministry of Defence aims to operate more sustainable and takes part in this initiative to reduce particulate matter and CO2 emissions from their flight operations.
