Buy or Rent the world’s largest airship
by Mark R
In case you’ve wanted your very own airship, like Max Zorin from that last Roger Moore James Bond film A View to a Kill, then you can get the Bullet 580 for about $8 million.
You can also rent it for about $300,000 month. Of course, you had better have a lot of helium, and a lot of time to inflate it, too. This picture here was taken inside Alabama’s Garret Coliseum. That stadium had better have a retractable roof, because that blimp will never fit through the door.
Anyway, here’s some more numbers on this airship. It can hold up to 2,000 lbs worth of weight and travel 20,000 feet (6,096 m) high, and it can go at 35 miles per hour with a top speed of 80.
Say, you know what I don’t see on this airship? A basket for holding the pilot and other passengers. Does the buyer or renter of this airship have to supply that on their own? Otherwise, you just rented or purchased the largest condom ever.
Okay, that was a cheap stupid joke. Still, I think I long for the days when blimps were in flower, and I wished there was an era where airships ruled the skies. Too bad they can’t make cheaper blimps, eh?
