Spring is Here, and So are the Airships
Deltoid Pumpkinseed anyone? Well, not exactly. But it is something like that. These are airships. The DP was an aerobody, which had the characteristics of an airship and an airplane. It could land and take off like an airplane, but it had the lifting capabilities of a large airship. The plan was to be able to lift huge amounts of payload and deliver them almost anywhere for the fraction of the cost of conventional transportation.
