Aeroscraft - hybrid airship

Poppa sent an email introducing the Aeroscraft - a heavier than air craft that uses helium to support 2/3 of its weight. Huge propellers and aerodynamics provide the remaining lift during cruising. Six turbofan jet engines control the take off and landing.

This craft is huge, but has it a small footprint and because it takes off vertically it does not require a runway. Passenger capacity will be about 250 configured as a flying hotel. Though the main configuration would be for cargo, delivering an entire store's worth of goods at a time.
