Whatever the fate of the Hindenburg may have been, the opulent airship still serves as a benchmark for those designing airships. The Airship Traveling concept by designer Thomas Rodemeier gets its inspiration, in part, from the Hindenburg. Airship Traveling concept visualizes a mobile five star hotel filled with opulence, flexibility and grace.
Analogous to a nurse-shark, the airship makes long-term stay before and after landing easier and also makes changing position less cumbersome. Short term journeys primarily make use of Helium to keep the airship afloat, while longer distances also include a healthy mix of Oxygen. Solar panels on the top of the ship provide auxiliary energy and take care of lighting and electric machines in the airship.
A telescopic anchor foot can be lowered from the airship for transient stops, which also allows the ship to rotate around the fulcrum and be best aligned to the wind.
