Aeroscraft Youtube Video

This is remarkable for one of the scenes at the end, where they land the Aeroscraft in a coastal area devastated by a tsunami. I wonder what the capability to speedily deploy 66 tons of emergency backup diesel generators to the Fukushima site would have changed. I think it would have been rather useful. And I think that Aeroscraft should look to the nuclear industry to buy one of their products for exactly that purpose. It would make nuclear safer, as long as it is still in use.

The video also mentions the interesting fact that an Aeroscraft uses only one third of the fuel a comparable fixed-wing airplane would need for the same transport capacity. That’s a serious saving of cost, and of CO2 emission right there.
