Airships have a certain romance to them. To paraphrase Douglas Adams in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, airships hang there in the sky just the way that bricks don’t.
Jet aircraft are very expensive to operate per hour of flight time. Airships are less expensive. Unfortunately, I was not able to determine just how much less expensive they are, but when I find out, that information will make its way into a future post. As I mentioned in a previous post, an F/A-18 costs about $20,000 an hour to fly.
