Look! Up in the Sky! It's a Bird...It's a Plane...'s a BLIMP!

The Coast Guard (hubby's former employer) is utilizing some old technology to help cope with the high cost of fuel. I think it's a hilarious, but excellent idea.

"The Navy is leasing a Skyship 600, about the size of a Boeing 747, for the six-week test mission between Florida's southern coast and Cuba, Coast Guard Lt. Matthew Moorlag said on Tuesday."
I'm sure hubby is glad to not have to go up in that. He is scared of heights and flying in a regular plane is bad enough.
