The Walrus is Coming

About 6 million dollars is going to Lockheed and Aeros Aero nautical Systems for the first phase of the Walrus.

This is not Pork.

It just looks like Pork. The idea is to build a blimp that can move 500 tons 12,000 miles in less than 7 days.  The $6 million dollars is for the first six months of the initial phase of the project.  This first phase will produce  a prototype about the size of a C-130.

The second phase will produce a winner that will get three years and more big bucks to come up with a demonstration model.

Again, this is one of those little clues that somebody has way too much money to spend.

And, no, it isn’t a good idea to use a blimp during a hurricane.
