Airships are amazing. Of course, they had plenty good reasons to go out of use when they did, but when the modern world understands aviation way better and has the means to make it safer, there is no reason airships shouldn’t make a comeback. If only for recreational purposes. UK based designer Mac Byer‘s Aether airship concept takes a very well imagined detour from the conventional airship appearance towards a form that is more modern and practicable, while keeping the necessary elements of the airship intact.
Taking in an influence range as wide as Thunderbird 2, Star Wars and the NASA space shuttle, the shape of the airship takes a distinctly modern form. Interiors include luxurious and spacious tables, stairways, lobbies, and rooms. Much like what you would find in a cruise ship, only this one floats on the air.
