Ever seen an aircraft fly that is designed to be powered by liquid hydrogen? Well, now you have.
Bob Curtin, AeroVironment business development director, revealed video of the 5 August first flight event for the Global Observer (GO), which is designed to remain airborne for several days. US Special Operations Command plans to use the aircraft as a communications relay system.
During the first flight, GO was actually powered only by batteries. The hydrogen propulsion system will be integrated after a few more test flights, Kirtland says.
