News come from Japan these days NYK (Nippon Yusen Kaisha) who invested in the NAC (Nippon Airship Company) sold all their shares, that is 58.8% of all NAC shares. On the NYK Website there was an announcement that went in to further detail. From what I can read out of this it seems that NAC is actually doing pretty well so it shouldn't effect them negatively. Grant Morgan investigated this a bit closer on his blog and found some Japanese Blog that is stating where the Zeppelin NT is right now and some more general News about Airships and Zeppelins. So ya I guess we will look again at the Zeppelin NT in Japan, in a future post.
Let's see where the Zeppelins are right now, as far as I know one is in Japan operated by NAC, sold by Zeppelin, one is in Africa right now in service for De Beer Diamonds and one is in Friedrichshafen and doing tourist tours and number 4 is beeing build and is scheduled to fly across London in 2008. I am not sure if these informations are 100% valid, so please help us to track them. Do you know more or have other informations, please contact us or write a comment in the blog.
