Thailand's military gummint recently spent over 10 million $ on a blimp and equipment.
didn't work out to well< br />

After ruptures and leaks kept the blimp grounded, the army in July 2010 reportedly asked the supplier for a replacement. Instead, the airship was repaired.
In 2012, the fat, oval-shaped blimp crashed while descending toward its hangar during Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s showcase visit to the south.
The attorney general’s office may study the case, officials said.

apparently the tropical climate didn't suit

disappointing, I was looking forward to seeing airships utilized more often. may be a technology that never really meets its potential.

The Blimp has been grounded with the usual finger pointing and claims of corruption because of possible kick backs for the original purchase..
