The ACCESS-II experiments have already commenced at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, CA. Testing involved the deployment of NRC's CT-133 aircraft to Palmdale, CA, to fly alongside aircrafts from NASA and the German Aerospace Center. The objective of the experiments is to obtain inflight airborne emission measurements and contrail charac- teristics from aircraft burning both conventional jet fuel and blended alternative fuels. The collaboration on ACCESS- II will result in the collection of complementary and unique flight test data that will be shared and reported to the International Forum for Aviation Research. This important research will aid in the qualification and ready ac- ceptance of the use of biofuels in aviation and open the door to future collaborations on alterna- tive fuels tests.

With this cooperative work, NRC will take part in NASA's ACCESS II project, the alternative exploring dna damage and Genotoxicity Page 7 Keeping climate change in checK Page 11 NRC's CT-133 research aircraft exits the hangar for a morning of final prep and fueling for flights later in the day.
