Zeppelin to Aeroscraft-The new generation rigid airship

Zeppelins were once considered the future of air transport – but after the horror of the Hindenburg disaster, they disappeared from the skies for more than 75 years.
Now a pioneering aviation firm hopes to bring back the airships in a bid to revolutionise the global market in transporting freight.
The Aeroscraft is built using innovative technology which allows it to control its flight better than previous airships, so it should avoid the problems experienced by the first generation of zeppelins.

The Aeroscraft can take off and land without an airstrip meaning it can operate even in war zones and disaster areas
Nearly ready: The zeppelin is set to have its first full test flight, and will roll off the production line from mid-2015
It requires only a third as much fuel as an aeroplane carrying cargo, and it can take off and land anywhere even without a formal airstrip – including on water – making it well suited to war zones and disaster areas.
