Flying the Big Blimp

Well I haven't had any time to do any updates lately because I've been busy getting some experience on one of our big airships. It it an A170 model for The M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas. The M Lightship is 179 feet long, 55 feet high and 46 feet wide with a 170,000 cubic feet envelope. Being so large, the airship still only cruises at a top speed of around 30 to 35mph with no wind. Also as you can see in the picture, it also has a huge LCD screen on the side of it for advertisements which measures 70 feet wide by 30 feet high.
