Photos of Modern Airships
« on: June 25, 2022, 10:56:44 pm »
Not my photo, but I did see it once, circa 1990:



I saw it over Detroit, and I wish that I had had a camera then, because the blimp was having problems, and for a a few it turned it's nose almost straight into the ground and I thought it was going to go down. Do blimps commonly have that kind of problem?

UPDATE: I linked to a different photo. I hope it's visible to everyone.

The owner of this website (imgproc.airliners.net) does not allow hotlinking to that resource (/photos/airliners/5/9/9/0051995.jpg). :'(

I do hope that this thread comes up with a lot more in the next few years. It is looking as if there might just be a new era of airships on the horizon, fingers crossed.
I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.
