Alaska city to get giant egg-shaped aircraft by 2019
April 27, 2017
KENAI, Alaska (AP) — A company looking to bring a football field-sized airship to Alaska is planning to use it to transport liquefied natural gas to the state's rural areas.
PRL Logistics first announced plans to base an airship at its facility along the Kenai River last year. Founder and CEO of the Anchorage-based transportation and contracting company Ron Hyde updated the Kenai City Council on the project last week, The Peninsula Clarion reported (http://bit.ly/2qe8dSF).
The egg-shaped aircraft is under construction in California and is expected to be ready for use in 2019.
