We're hearing all those reports about the difficulties of getting stuff to the disaster strucken areas in Aceh. -They need helicopters because the roads are damaged -The main runway for airplanes was closed yesterday because of an accident, making the logistical nightmare even bigger -Egeland called for "ships on which helicopters can land" etc... Isn't it about time that we seriously reconsider building cargo blimps? These things can land nearly anywhere, are much cheaper to operate than helicopters (per ton lifted), and they are not dependent on other infrastructural chains. Does anyone know of any companies creating such heavy lift blimps? After everything we've seen in South Asia, the case for such airships has now obviously been made.
