airships

City of Kenai

At its meeting Wednesday night, the Kenai City Council was eager to learn more about a potential sale of city property for infrastructure to house a hybrid airship — a kind of blimp with a large cargo and passenger capacity.

Ron Hyde, owner of the Cannery Lodge and PRL Logistics on Kenai’s south side, plans to use hybrid airships to supply oil and gas and mining operations around the state, based out of Kenai, and approached city administration with the desire to lease or purchase the land off Bowpicker Lane.
