BlimpBlimps include everything from the Hindenberg to the modern airships that huckster for tire companies. Blimps may remain in place (0 movement) without danger of crashing, but unlike other aircraft, are more susceptible to winds. Blimps may take off vertically or horizontally. Early airships used explosive hydrogen for lifting (Am(50) explosion), but helium is universally used today. If the Body of the airship is reduced to 0, the craft does not have enough lift to remain aloft, and will crash. Finally, blimps include both balloons and those airships with an internal frame - the latter are properly called dirigibles.
