New airship for Afghanistan

$211 million proposed crash airship program called “Blue Devil” 350 feet  long, 4 miles up.

The Taliban guy yapping about an upcoming ambush gets get the coordinated information down to US ground troops in less than 15 seconds. If USAF gets the money. the first flight is scheduled for October 15.

IMO: H'm, reminds me somehow of Horward Hughes's Spruce Goose, which looked really big at Long Beach, CA for many years after. Like the spruce goose, it could work and could even be a good idea, sort of. They might even use it to blow up Julian Assange,I dare say.
