Comments on Dynalifter Prototype Ready For Flight
Amateur aircraft builders create the prototype for giant heavy lifter airships. (Read the complete story)

"Short distance take-off and landing? 4,000 feet is three-quarters of a mile!"
(Andy 1/7/2006 9:33:55 AM)
"It's like a giant fish in concept i.e. it uses gas to give both lift and to give stability, the wings also do the same but on a finer scale"
(Christopher Thomas. 1/8/2006 2:41:22 AM)
"For another take on this concept, take a look at Dean Ing's "The Big Lifters". In it he describes what he calls a "Delta Dirigible", a large flying wing shaped dirigible that gets its lift both from Helium and from the airfoil shape of the body of the craft. "

"Philip Jose Farmer also wrote about this in his book "Day World.""

"Australia outback would love dynalifters of any size. Trackless land trains would be a thing of the past."
