Things airship related and the back story on operating the Airship Ventures Zeppelin “Eureka” in the USA.
Next month I will be at the Zeppelin museum on the shores of Lake Constance. I am looking forward to learning about the history of the Zeppelin NT. It is great that Hugo Eckener's dream is still alive in 2010!
Is the envelope pressurized at this point? I always assumed that the envelop would droop around the triangular shape of the frame if the helium was removed.
Yes, it is pressurized, just with air rather than helium. This is why we have the ship in a "cradle" (I like to think of it more as a buttress system) to support the load normally taken by the helium.
