Jet fuel is very similar to diesel. Most diesel engines can run on jet fuel and some jet engines can indeed run on diesel.

The Mig-29 was known for its smoky engines. It has nothing to do with the fuel and everything to do with the design of the RD-33 themselves. Pretty sure this has been eliminated from the engines for the new SMT version though.

AFAIK jet fuel is just diesel. With a very, very low sulphur content. And jet fuel is rigorously controlled for water contamination (as the water might freeze, and lead to BA 38-like accidents with fuel starvation).

Heating oil is diesel too, but there the sulphur does not matter. And home heating is indeed one of the culprits for the SOx (sulphur dioxides) pollution.

but the a/c in the video had its wheels down ... and why did they take the risk of wake turbulence from the camera ship. It even looked like they tried to literally dock nose-in to the cargo hold or at least come within a very close distance?
