Blimps and Zeppelins, once the future of air travel throughout the world, now a fond memory from the past. We see these every now and again either on TV during a major sporting event or actually above head. Most of the time it is the Good Year blimp that is often seen, however, we caught a few pictures here in Gloucester of the DirectTV blimp over the Gloucester Courthouse area a few years ago.
There is talk these days of bringing back air travel via blimps as the gases used in them now is much safer than ever before. It's a cost effective plan as opposed to jet fuel. The issues however, are storage of the giant air machines. The future has some interesting surprises for us all.
