U.S. Satellite Captures Images of Chinese Military Blimp
Aerospace experts say the blimp could signal a notable advancement in China's airship program.
A large military blimp has been spotted at a remote desert base in northwestern China. The satellite images are from November of last year, about three months before a Chinese spy balloon was shot down off of our coast. The incident brought significant attention to China’s airship program. These new images show a roughly one-hundred-foot long blimp in the middle of a runway and a hangar. Aerospace experts say the blimp could signal a notable advancement in China’s airship program, demonstrating a more versatile and maneuverable aircraft than previously seen or known.
