NEWS: New Spy Blimp... Not A UFO


Video Link

"The U.S. Army's Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) flew for the first time from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., on Aug. 7. The air vehicle was airborne for more than 90 minutes during its initial flight. LEMV is built by Northrop Grumman with major subcontractor Hybrid Air Vehicle."

The football field-sized blimp uses ten percent of the fuel, compared to traditional aircraft and can hover in the air for three weeks at a time, operated either manually, or remoterly like a drone.

Not a speed demon but...

Northrup Grumman says the Spy Blimp is 100 feet longer than the Goodyear Blimp and is able to accommodate up to seven tons of supply and cargo, at a top speed of 30 mph. Even with a full load, the Spy Blimp can travel up to 2,400 miles.

I see you!

Military plans are to use the LEMV as a reconnaissance vehicle, jam packed with electronic surveillance equipment and set to enter live trials in Afghanistan, in 2013.

So when you look up in the sky and see the Spy Blimp, it could be looking back at you!
