US firm develops new airship for cargo

Futuristic airship is designed to carry large shipments to regions without infrastructure like airports.

    But there's no cause for alarm - a new type of airship is being developed in the United States. It's designed to carry large shipments to far away places that lack transport infrastructure like airports.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds has the story.
