Found some more info on this thing. It uses two Ford 2.3 engines tuned to 150hp and running on liquid hydrogen. A multi-stage turbo system allows it to run at 65,000ft. Most airliners fly at about 40,000ft.

Oil companies happened to it. Pretty cool concept for our trucks. Someone should do it!

If you watch mythbusters (don't laugh to hard) you'll know that they took a regular engine and cut off the gas fee and tried feeding it pure hydrogen directly into the carb... it ran for a bit till a spark caused a small back fire and started them... but the engine did run (they were testing fuel efficiency myths and this was about home brew hydrogen fuel cells)
