On July 4th, the Aeros Project Pelican demonstrator moved outside of the hangar at Tustin, California where the airship is being built.
According to InsideDefense.com “The Pentagon has deemed a demonstration of a rigid-hull, variable-buoyancy hybrid air vehicle a ·success,· noting that the program designed to address some of the most significant challenges facing heavy lift airships has achieved Its objectives.”
Aeros Corp., designers and builders of the Aeroscraft have provided us with several photographs of the airship, including several taken while it was outside of the hangar on July 4, 2013.
