Watch the world's largest airship get inflated to fill a stadium

The world's largest inflatable airship, measuring 234 feet long and 65 feet in diameter, was just inflated for the first time inside the Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery, AL. The monstrous vehicle, dubbed the Bullet 580, took a full six hours to be completely filled up.

E-Green technologies, the company behind the Bullet 580, hopes to sell them for "surveillance, communications and commercial applications." Of course, the reason you don't see a lot of airships around these days are because even one this large can only support a measly 2,000 pounds of weight, which isn't much. But still, this is one impressive-looking machine.
