"If it looks right, it'll fly right"

Never truer!

Quite what practical use this ridiculous gasbag will have to justify the huge amount of funding it needs will be difficult to imagine. Most 'surveillance' tasks can now be covered by drones, which are vastly cheaper and simpler to deploy than a giant gasbag.

"We've designed this thing - now let's find a use for it" seems a weird approach to life.
