...beyond the helicopter, by distance.

...beyond the aircraft, lower in cost(s).

i just love these things; giants, like whales, that fly like bumble bees.

...coming soon.

Long overdue and with modern technology they make a lot of sense.

People can't seem to get away from that graphic film of the Hindenburg (hydrogen) burning though. :(

This will not work. Can you imagine being in one of these on a stormy night? It is just not practical enough. Imagine flying into 100m/h wind.
You will be going backwards.

I guess if you are going along the jet stream, it will at least fly but how comfortable will it be?

You don't have a clue about airships. Anymore than you do about a lot of things you seem to feel the need to comment upon.

Trust me on this Lordo. Finish the bottle and get yourself off to bed.

Tomorrow, people will be just as interested in how the racist UK firebrigade didn't rescue Mrs Jones's cat from up a tree, because she was black.
