Ryanair has already announced plans to cram 15,000 "seats" on it, and one pay toilet.

For cargo transportation, this makes a lot of sense, especially for places that are far from the sea and without airports. Not just for humaitarian aid, but also for trade too.

I wish them best of luck.

We need a luxury zeppelin airline.  Catering services and D-list performers high in the sky.

So what you're saying, if I read that right, ( ( HAV304 - 32 ) (5 / 9) ) ) = Hindenberg?  I like those odds.

FTFA:  Cardington hangar, which now houses the aircraft, was built 100 years ago and is where they built the ill-fated airship, R101 (pictured), in the 1920s

The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'
That's what I said
The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
Or so I have read

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

I met her on Monday, 'twas my lucky bun day
You know what I mean
I love her each weekday, each velvety cheek day
You know what I mean

My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game is waiting there inside her tights, yeah

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about mud flaps, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo

Okay, from a physics standpoint I understand what the pontooning does, but going from two to three separations? Seems to me like would make the back end incredibly sluggish compared to the front when maneuvering.

Most of the angles make it look like a vulva to me. It's the Quimdenberg.

I was going to photoshop how the cargo door opens in the front, but... no. I don't particularly want to have to look at the "goat" reference material.

He's trying to do as many positive things as he possibly can.
Or he gets bored easily and likes doing awesome things.
Or has a bet on who can be more awesome, with Richard Branson.
Maybe he hates Richard Branson and is trying to one up him.

Who knows? I'm just happy there is somebody on the planet like him.

I know, right? Who wants to take a chance that their Christmas gifts to Grandma get blown up when one of the bridge crew decides that a smoke is more satisfying than the patch?

100mph? that's freaking slow for an jet. the stall speed of a 747 is at the very minimum is around 130 knots (about 149mph) while 100mph would be 86.89 knots.


Yeah, slowwwwww.

I take it you don't have much experience with lighter-than-air craft.
