Lockheed-Martin’s Crazy Blimp

This crazy blimp machine (which I could easily see being mistaken for a UFO) is designed to take off and land quickly while staying in the air for extended periods of time.  It’s about 80% bouyant, meaning it needs about 20% of the speed and airplane needs to stay aloft.  On the ground, its much like a hovercraft that rides on those 4 big air cushions on its underside.  More info on the P-791 can be found here.
