Boeing to unleash hydrogen-powered Phantom Eye with 450 pounds of payload

Boeing Phantom Eye hydrogen-powered unmanned bomber plane
If the Taranis wasn’t enough military thrust for you, have a look at Boeing’s bowling pin shaped unmanned hydrogen powered aircraft system, the Phantom Eye.

Capable of flying at 65,000 feet for four days straight with its 150 foot wingspan and 450 pound payload, the Phantom Eye will surely keep any neighboring infidels in check. Powering the aircraft are dual 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engines that provide 150 horsepower each, although not stealthy, the cruising speed of approximately 150 knots is enough to conduct surveillance or just drop a few bombs on the “enemy.”

Expect Boeing’s Phantom Eye to visit NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, California for typical ground and taxi tests in preparation for its lift off in early 2011.
