Very cool. I'm partial to airships, and wouldn't be surprised at all to see them make a resurgence.

One of my favorite watercolorists, Bill Steidel, has done a number of fantasy versions -- http://steidelsart.com/

Cardington has a long sorry history with airships, Read Neville Shute Norway's autobiography.

One of the hangars at Cardington has a bit of history elsewhere. http://airshipsonline.com/sheds/Pulham.htm
