Hybrid Air Vehicles Prototype Airship in Flight

Xanares sent me a link to a BBC report on this which can be found here. I've seen stuff about this before and, I think, posted something about it in the deep strata of this blog. I note, looking on You Tube, that it has a fair bit of competition. But then it should -- it's a good idea.

I heard about their skycat project some time ago but didnt realise until yesterdays news that theyve got an order to build one! By summer this year no less

The big version can carry many hundreds of tons of cargo. I want to see a passenger version, Ryan. How cool would a booze cruise across the Channel be in one of them!

A few years ago I had a conversation with a friend where we wondered how big and cheap an airship could be made before a sky cruise could be a viable holiday!

You could even parachute down to some destinations lol
