Transportation Command Chief Eyes Airships

Air Force Gen. William Fraser III, Commander of U.S. Transportation Command, told a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee today that hybrid airships have the potential to tote a lot more cargo than a ship, faster than the command’s conventional cargo aircraft, such as the C-17.

Hybrid airships, which get lift both from helium and their airfoil shapes -- have the potential to make “factory to foxhole” cargo delivery possible, Fraser said.
