M1400 Moves Towards First Flight

Assembly of the M1400, the largest airship in the world, continues at a fast pace in Weeksville, North Carolina. But even as the ship nears it first flight, the programme is in jeopardy. Full details in the June issue of AIRSHIP.


If the taxpayers of the USA want value for money why not trial the M1400 in an anti-piracy role off the Somali coast, rather than mothball it.  

We have waited a long time for a airship in the size range of the M1400. There are many, many other missions it can do. I only hope it's capabilities will be explored, even in these times of tight military budgets.
