And it's quite lovely


From an Idea posted on the Halfbakery.

Quote
A personal airship both lofted and propelled, at a leisurely pace, by a series of balloons tethered to a conveyor belt which moves along the vertically-oriented perimeter of the longitudinal axis of the craft. Each balloon inflates as it moves from the underside of the ship, up around the prow, reaching peak inflation above the center of the ship. The balloons then deflate as they move around and down the backside.

That lady was a genius.

It would work in theory. Emphasis on 'liesurely pace' however...
Well I've worked among the spitters and I've breathed the oily smoke
I've shovelled up the gypsum and it neigh 'on makes you choke

Been working rough, I've seen enough, to make your stomach turn
