New Concept Aircraft

Mon Jan 22, 2001 12:58 am

there are now studies of bringing back the zeppelin type lighter than airships due to the high cost of aviation fuel and the forcast prices only going up and up. wouldnt it be cool to see those great ships in the air again. of course they would be slow but if you just want to travel on a vacation think about how nice that would be. you would have you own bed room and they would have dining rooms. i think it would be awesome.

It would be a good idea if you had time to kill.

I doubt that this will enter into passenger service - but cargo is whole different story
Cargolifter CL-160 with 160tons payload is currently under development in Germany
