Airships from abroad!

Hello all,

Boy, July is the month for Zeppelin. First the anniversary of the creation of the famous airships, now today (July 8th) witnesses Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin's birthday. Yep, that's right, it's the 178th anniversary of Count Zeppelin. But there be more to this day than just the Count's birthday. You see, today is ALSO the 80th anniversary of the christening of the great LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin, the most successful airship ever to have flown.


Until next time.

Maybe, but I wouldn't count on being able to fly to Europe via Zeppelin anytime soon. Unfortunately, Zeppelin hasn't even gotten to making a prototype for their enlarged NT14 model yet. They announced that concept several years back already...

will airship and zeppelin be built in U.S.A?

Well, the Goodyear Zeppelin NT ships will be built in America with assistance from Zeppelin. They made a bit of a celebration of renewing the cooperation the two companies briefly had during the 1930s. Rather cool, actually.

Below is some video of the Dirigible Races at the Steampunk Empire Symposium this last weekend. Some of them of funny and/or hilarious, but there were a couple of very impressive RC dirigibles to be seen. One that's beautifully constructed and flies so so, and one that's built in a clean and utilitarian manner that flies wicked fast.

See the video at Youtube here:

My dirigible "The Hammerhead" can be seen in the video as well, with a  brand new all white helium envelope, but it didn't do so well maneuvering the course. My pilot was having so much trouble we called it at the halfway mark :(

I'll be building a new dirigible for next year to be certain, I'll likely try to get back to basics with a standard blimp/attached gondola design, while continuing to make it look pretty. :)
