This "Ocean Liner in the Sky" is being developed in California - it looks pretty awesome :nod: so thought some of you aviation enthusiasts might be interested to see it :)

I suppose it could be used instead of ferries and for cruises, would be alot faster than long train journeys as well.

Nice find TC! :D I'd love to see airships as mainstream modes of transport again, as the technology has advanced quite some way since the Hindenburg.

Looks a good idea. Would be great to take a tour of a continent in.

Hold on folks this thing has not flown yet!
Once trials have been done & it's been flown then we can sit back & get excited.

Back in the late 1980's/early 90's a project like this was mooted.
After test flights the idea was dropped ever so quietly!

Oh & a nice find TC;)
