I saw and photographed this airship flying oven Mountain View last week. Quite beautiful. It's great that it is being floated as a passenger carrying vehicle for tourist rides. But realistically this is an iffy proposition. Airships work fine on calm days, but wind and rain stop flights. We'll see how the company handles flight cancellations for unexpected weather even during the predictable west coast summer.

I think the airship is still looking for a good role to play. So far in it's history since aircraft came to prominence, it hasn't really found one.
