wow... that aircraft looks amazing! i live in buffalo ny, i remember when the bills were good and goign to the superbowl every year, the good year blimp would always be in town. i lived right next to the airport, so i was in fatuated. one year, they had 4 blimps for the monday night game vs the broncos... it was met life, good year, goldschlager and a white and green one... may have been fuji film?> i absolutely loved seeing so many blimps flying around.
then after 9/11 it was illegal to fly an aircraft over a stadium, and i havent seen a blimp in the area in over a decade.
this guy looks like it could go just about anywhere. weird how technology from the 1800s comes back in the 2000s
