What Looks Like A Ship But Flies?: Aeroscraft Flying Hotel

About a century ago, Zeppelins cruised the airwaves, transport- ing dozens of people across oceans and countries. This may look like one of those blimps, but it’s actually an aeronautic ferry, offering luxurious accommodations to those who can afford it.

With a cabin that dwarfs planes and the ability to let passengers move around freely, the Queen Mary-style Aeroscraft stays aloft with 14 million cubic feet of helium and six Jet engines. It can sail through the air at up to 174 mph, cruises at 8,000 feet above sea level, but takes 18 hours to take 250 passengers from coast to American coast. Someday, it may take you across an ocean to Europe, Asia or the Americas. [Via TheCoolHunter.com.]
