Up Up And Awaaaay: World's Largest Aircraft Takes Flight

This is the HAV304, the world's largest aircraft (provided you consider blimps aircraft). It's 300-feet long, 113 feet wide and 85 feet tall. It can stay aloft (on helium) for three weeks traveling at speeds up to 100MPH and potentially cover 50,000 miles. For reference, I put about 800 miles on my car a year. I don't go out much. The airship was designed to be able to deliver cargo to remote, hard-to-reach areas. You know what the problem with airships is? They make easy targets. Also, why does the front of the thing look like a guy bending over with flattened balls. Plus the cockpit looks like a penis. I'm sorry, but I have a rule against riding in anything that looks like a dick or butt (Oscar Mayer Wienermobile excluded).

Thanks to nasp, who wants to ride INSIDE the blimp part and talk like a chipmunk the whole trip.
