We can’t help but be amazed every time we see a plane the size of a 747 or an A-380 pass over head. Those things must weigh a ton, our thoughts run, and they’re made out of metal! How is it possible that that thing can be up in the air rather than instantly crashing to the ground once gravity remembers what it is supposed to be doing? The ability to fly is perhaps man’s greatest achievement and example of our mastery over nature. It had long been a dream of humans – Icarus of Greek mythology fame constructed wings out of wood and feathers but flew too close to the sun, the great Leonardo da Vinci dreamed up strange looking flying machines as he doodled. To be able to do what the birds make seem an effortless thing is a fascinating thing – we can walk, run, climb and swim, but no matter how much we jump we can’t fly ourselves. So we built wonderful machines to do it for us. Frankly, our favourite flying vehicle has always been, and will always be, the zeppelin. Who wouldn’t love effortlessly floating above the clouds in a giant powered balloon? It’s got to be more fuel efficient than an plane, as it doesn’t need to be going incredibly fast to stay in the air, and, as a result of this, safer as well. You might not get there as fast in a zeppelin as in jet, but you’ll have more fun and arrive in far more style. NB
