Dynalifter – The helium powered and energy saving airship

Dynalifter_airship.jpg

An airship and an airplane combined, an aircraft christened the Dynalifter is taking shape at a hanger outside Toledo in Ohio. This aircraft uses helium and also uses the runway to a certain extent unlike common airships. 30 to 80 percent of the lift is provided by helium, while internal combustion provides for the rest. The Dynalifter, unlike other airships, take’s off and lands just like a regular airplane. It however uses one third of the fuel used by aircrafts and does not need a long air strip to land on. A prototype scaling 117 feet will soon be airborne if everything goes as planned.
