Animation Project: Blimp

The first thing that I think of when I come across the word blimp is probably a Zeppelin which were used by the Germans during World War 1 but later had a Renaissance just prior to World War 2, of course the dream literally went up in flames with the Hindenburg in 1937, still they are quite spectacular looking machines.

In truth a blimp a actually non-rigid airship which basically means it has no rigid-structure supporting it, a Zeppelin on the other hand is a rigid airship.
