An initial appraisal is made of results of two studies of the ground requirements of liquid hydrogen (LH//2) air transports. The studies were made for the NASA Langley Research Center by the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company and by the Lockheed California Company. Each hypothesized the use of a 400-passenger, 5500 nautical mile range subsonic commercial LH//2 transport. Two of the world's busiest commercial airports, Chicago O'Hare International and San Francisco International were selected for study; O'Hare by Boeing and San Francisco by Lockheed. Both studies produced conceptual designs for facilities to generate the required quantities of fuel from pipeline gaseous hydrogen and to deliver liquid hydrogen to the airplanes.
