Aircraft mashup – Dirigible + Plane = Aeroscraft

Airship manufacturer Aeros has announced its plans for a new cargo airship that will haul 100 tons of cargo or can also be outfitted as a cruise liner or personal yacht. It is much slower than a jet (120mph) but faster than a conventional blimp, and what it lacks in speed it makes up for in space comfort and flexibility with its VTOL.

I’ll take one, I just have to work out whether I have the space to store it next to the Space Shuttle I’m never going to own either. Maybe when Todd makes his podcasting fortune he’ll take me for a ride in his.
