The US Army Had a "Mega Blimp?"

The US Army shuts down a mega-blimp program.  How bizarre that it exists!
This oddity is called the Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle.

Check out the article over on Wired:
"Army Kills The Military’s Last Remaining Giant Spy Blimp"
"...LEMV. Built by Northrop Grumman, it’s a dimpled blimp as long as a football field; seven stories high; and carries a price tag of over half a billion dollars."
