Pipe-smoking potential purchasers consider a passing Zeppelin Nt.

From the Neiman Marcus Online Catalog:

Zeppelin Nt

Be the first on your block (or in the world for that matter) to privately own a modern Zeppelin NT.

• A famous first of German ingenuity when it was launched in 1900, the iconic transportation genius of Count Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin has achieved another milestone.
• Re-engineered with the best new technology, your Zeppelin is the first modern airship licensed to carry commercial passengers.
• It floats with safe, non-flammable helium contained in an inner envelope of high-strength multi-layered material.
• The roomy cabin features panoramic window views of the clouds above and sights below.
• Can comfortably accommodate 11 pipers, a couple of lab assistants, a pilot, and a flight attendant (15 total).
• With its lightweight aluminum and carbon-fiber framework, three 200-hp engines, and swivel propellers, you can take off and land easily, like a helicopter.
• It can achieve 70 knots and has a flight duration of up to 24 hours.
• You'll want to plan ahead for parking; your eight-ton sky gem will be around 230 feet long, 60 feet wide, and 53 feet tall.
