DailyDirt: Aircraft That Stay In The Sky For Days (Or Longer)

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Most folks don't really like flying for more than a few hours at a time, so it's not really a problem for a lot of people that most planes aren't even capable of flights lasting longer than day. (Zeppelins can fly for weeks at a time, but those ships haven't been flying regularly for a while.) Autonomous drones have been making some really long flights recently, and there may be more uses for aircraft that can stay up in the air for long periods of time. Here are just a few examples. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Well I, for one, appreciate Michael Ho's gung-ho investigative writing (see what I did there?) for the the urls-we-dig-up dept. Thanks!
