This is not a Blimp. It's a sort of flying Queen Mary 2 that could change the way you think about air travel. It's the Aerocraft, and when it's completed, it will ferry pampered passengers across continents and oceans as they stroll leisurely about the one-acre cabin or relax in their well-appointed state rooms. This two-football-fields-long concept airship is the brain child of Igor Pasternak, whose privately-funded California firm, Worldwide Aero Corporation, is in the early stages of developing a prototype and expects to have one completed by 2010. Will you reserve your space?

Wow!If i had the money then why not?Hopefully in a few years of it being launched it would become more affordable and we can all enjoy the luxury of such things.

Not all that long ago people would have laughed at this concept. But now it is widely felt there is very little that is imposible. Because of it's size I would think very few airports would be able to handle it and then only after expanding. So the question would be in the eairly years would there truly be a cost benefit. This would be very simular to what a cruise is now. Only we are talking hours instead of days and most likely to only one destination. It will be very interesting to see how it unfolds.
