Hybrid Air Vehicles

I think I might be in love…with a skycat.
Ever since I was a child I’ve loved blimps, I like the idea of them. Anything that flies is always going to get my attention, but there’s something quite special in my mind associated with airships, and I always wished I lived somewhere where I could see them flying around.
Living in a garage the iconic goodyear blimp is one that holds a lot of appeal for me, makes me think of summers as a kid
There’s also that very steam punk thing about them *drools a little*
So when I saw a hybrid air vehicle on the news my heart skipped a beat, such gorgeous machines, if you look at the website (or check out youtube, worth checking out the nearly identical P-791 as well) you can see a video of one in flight, they fly like some kind of sky whale, really graceful. They look so much like the blimps I love, but new technology is creating so much potential in these hybrid machines as cargo transporters & surveillance that their standard blimp counterparts just don’t have
Really hope this technology continues to go places
