    US aircraft maker Boeing flew a plane powered by a hydrogen battery at the start of 2008 , a "first in the history of aviation", a senior company official said today.

    Boeing chief technology officer John Tracy said the development was "full of promises for a greener future".

    He was speaking at a press conference at a Boeing research centre in the central Spanish town of Ocana.

    "This is a historical technological success for Boeing," Mr Tracy said.

    The plane, which used propellers, flew in a straight line for about 20 minutes at an altitude of about 1000m, Boeing said. The flight was manned.
