Rigid airships are back, baby!
Thanks to Goodyear, the airship revival is no longer dead. Working with ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik, a German Zeppelin manufacturer, Goodyear’s new airships will carry more and maneuver better than their non-rigid predecessors. The zeppelins will be 55 feet longer than the old blimps, have a much larger “envelope” (or inflated sack of air that keeps the whole thing aloft). As a result, the new design can haul nearly 7,000 pounds more than the current Goodyear blimps.
