At the turn of the 20th century planes were still in their infancy, but people still wanted to get off the ground and go somewhere while doing it. That’s when everybody got into blimps, and their rigid cousins, airships. And goddamn were they pretty.
Airships may soon soar in the cold skies of northern Canada and Alaska, bringing supplies to remote mining communities where planes can't always fly and roads are cost-prohibitive.
At 235 ft long, the Bullet 580 airship is the world's largest airship and capable of cruising 20,000 feet in the air at 80 MPH while carrying a 2,000-pound payload. It also looks like a giant inflatable dong.
