TUSTIN, CALIF. — A futuristic airship is moving closer to its’ first flight set for March.

Worldwide Aeros is building the airship in a 17-story-tall, World War II-era blimp hangar at the former Tustin Marine Corps Air Station.

The aircraft is a prototype for a fleet of airships that designers hope will someday ferry cargo around the globe more cheaply than cargo jets.

Worldwide Aeros is hosting a public viewing of the one-of-a-kind Aeroscraft from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday  through Monday (Feb.4).
