    Reblogged this on Will S.' Sunny Side Blog and commented:
    Nice to see the dirigible there.

    I wish we had airships today; now they can be made safe using helium instead of hydrogen, yet because they’re slower than airplanes, nobody wishes to fly on them. (Yet people take boat cruises, and people fly in hot air balloons, so what’s the difference, since airships are like a cross between the two?) So all we get now are advertising blimps… {Sigh}
