Lockheed-Martin’s Crazy Blimp
May 12, 2009 Leave a comment
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.
