Royalty and dignitaries, brandy and cigars.

Airships – “Royalty and dignitaries, brandy and cigars. Grey Lady-giant of the skies you hold them in your arms… ” — Iron Maiden. Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer for Iron Maiden and captain of the band’s personal Boeing 757, has invested $380,000 in Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd who are within 4 years of their first-planned commercial flight of the Airlander10—a hybrid-electric airship that produces 75% fewer emissions per mile traveled than a passenger jet. Perhaps this investment isn’t a surprise. The band is famous both for long songs, and songs about flying, and their longest-ever song—Empire of the Clouds—is about airships. Yes please. #wakeupimagine H/T Daniel L. Bain #travel
