#3 I just like the idea of an airship landing at WalMart. I mean, I'd forego Amazon for a week to see that.

#5 Airship designs generally call for several 'bags', or separate air chambers, so that it is still airworthy should there be a "hole".

The Hindenberg burned due to its carrying hydrogen instead of helium.
