      • AIRSHIPS AND BLIMPS - blimps, unlike hot air balloons, have a shape and structure which allows them to maneuver in flight. A blimp consists of an envelope containing helium gas.

The tip of a blimp or airship is supported by a nose cone batten which allows the craft to be attached to a mooring mast. Engines control propellers that allow the airship to be controlled. The gondola carries the passengers and pilot and sits beneath the envelope.
