Cargo super airship prototype complete

WORK on a prototype for an 800-ft cargo-carrying super airship set to revolutionise global logistics has been completed in California, USA.
The futuristic 260-ft-long Aeroscraft model – a one-third subscale of the planned 66-tonne air vehicle – was erected in a purpose-built hangar.
It has been designed to unload oversized and heavy freight without re-ballasting or ground infrastructure. Airports and ground-handling equipment are also surplus to requirements. 
Aeros chief executive officer Igor Pasternak, declares: “This is truly the beginning of providing a vertical global transportation solution for perhaps the next 100 years.”
