Corn used to help power two Alaska Airlines flights

Corn is now one of the biofuels Alaska Airlines uses on board.

SEA-TAC - Two Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800s left from Sea-Tac bound for San Francisco and Washington, D.C. on Tuesday powered by a biofuel blend.

The jet fuel blend consisted of 80 percent petroleum and 20 percent biofuel from corn.

Each acre of field corn is capable of creating 300 gallons of biofuel.
