Boeing Puts Hydrogen Powered Plane To Test

And it doesn’t fail to impress: Boeing claims that they managed to send a hydrogen- cell battery powered plane into the air, which would be a first and definitely a breakthrough for the industry.

The development was “a historical technological success for Boeing (and) … full of promises for a greener future,” Boeing chief technology officer John Tracy said.

Apparently it flew at a speed of 100 km/h ~ 62 m/h for about 20 minutesat an altitude of 1,000 metres ~ 3,300 feet powered only by the hydrogen battery!


Hydrogen power uses “fuel cells” that tap the energy produced from the chemical transformation of hydrogen and oxygen into water.
