Aeroscraft ML866 Flying Yacht

Set to be launched next month, the whale-looking Aeros ML866 uses a combination of buoyancy (like a blimp) and lift (like a plane) to cruise comfortably through the air with over 5,000 square feet of interior room, it has more lounge space than some houses. It can take off vertically, without taking up runway time at crowded airports. And although this thing is designed to fit a "business center" with video conferencing, I'm actually thinking it deserves a swimming pool with adjoining hot tub, and a few of those 103-inch plasmas from Panasonic. The downside is a rated 120 knots of top speed, which means a world tour on this baby wouldn't be nearly as quick as it would be roomy. [GizMag]

@BANDIT:

I'm not so sure this would work for a ""short" trip like that. Seems to be too big for such a thing. Perhaps a scaled down version

@IREPO:

5,000 sq ft, but the question is how many cubic ft? 58,000 sq ft is just floor space, how many floors would this have? if its 5,000 sqft per floor, 10 floors and they've got it made. Bout the size of an office building I'd say. Not too practical either though, so it may be a mistake like you're saying.

And never might, re-reading the post under yours IREPO, it looks like they just dont know what they're talking about.
