I doubt the synthetic part will be green enough so I’m sure the eccoweenies will have plenty to cry about.

The Air Force bought 290,000 gallons of the synthetic fuel from Shell Houston, at a cost of $3.41 per gallon...
A McChord spokeswoman said the cost of traditional jet fuel was about $2.31 a gallon this week
So Synthetic costs about $1.10 a gallon more, so there is no economic justification.
And the synfuel comes from a Muslim country, so there isn't any strategic benefit, either.
The fuel was produced at a Shell plant in Malaysia

Just like the stupid pentagon, how much oil do they use in their kitchens each year, I bet they pay someone to haul it away and dispose of it. To damn dumb to build a plant and process their own oil.

It will look a lot like every other takeoff," said Col. Frank Rechner, the mission support group commander with McChords 62nd Airlift Wing. But its historic.
Okay, this looks like a line out of a comedy skit.

Yahoo! I’m only about a mile away from the base. I love having planes fly around the house. While there are no fighters based here, they come and go, I suppose doing some training or fuel stops from other bases around here? When they did have the airshow, for about a week we had all sorts of stuff zooming around. And don’t get me started on the military UFOs and stuff that comes in late at night, virtually sound free, with no lights. My night vision goggles picks em up to a degree.
