Airlander 10 Takes Flight: I Like Big Blimps and I Cannot Lie
I think Sir Mix-a-lot would love the Airlander 10 blimp. In fact, this airship looks like a giant butt so much that it has earned the nickname “Flying Bum” from the rather reserved Brits who have…

New Airships to Hit Canada: A Bit of Fringe Up North

New Airships to Hit Canada: A Bit of Fringe Up North
I’ve always enjoyed airships. They’ve been featured prominently in Fringe, in the other universe. It’s a shame that there aren’t more around, but that might not be for long. Hybrid Air Vehicles will be making some…

20-Foot Floating Airship Replica: Is That a Blimp in Your Driveway?

Weblimp Crowd-Controlled Remote Airship: Oh the Humanity!
This shiny Mylar dirigible doesn’t look like the safest airship I’ve ever seen. No, not because of its poor aerodynamics. It’s more about the fact that it’s controlled by a group of people standing in another…
