The World's Largest Airship.



Yes, I know it's Kevlar, and can go 80 mph. But you can't seriously look at NASA's new Bullet 580 rolling around in that rinkydink Alabama coliseum like a worm in a Mexican jumping bean and tell me that ours is a nation of eternal progress and innovation.



Hmm? Oh, nothing, just a few blimps and things we decided to inflate inside Hangar One here at Lakehurst, New Jersey, back in '41. Ol' George Strock shot a bunch of 'em for LIFE.
