Steel, and is also a FlyingAircraftCarrier with docking space for the Brotherhood's Vertibirds. The only way to access it is by Vertibird from the Brotherhood's airport base or called in by flare from anywhere in the Commonwealth.

* ''UsefulNotes/TheHindenburg'' is an example. Stunningly luxurious, it was a massive commercial airship made for Trans-Atlantic voyages. It was-and remains to this day- the largest and most spacious aircraft ever built(the A deck ''alone'' had more floor space than an entire Airbus A380).The Hindenburg boasted a [[FoodPorn dining room served by four chefs from gourmet restaurants,]] a bar with a glass floor, promenades with huge tilted windows that could be opened in flight, staterooms reminiscent of the sleeping car on a luxury train, a double grand staircase, a smoking lounge [[StarshipLuxurious inside its own airlock]], a small library and writing room, a huge stylized mural of the world with moving ships and Zeppelins that tracked the journey of the airship, and even a [[PianoDrop piano lounge.]] It also carried unusual cargo, such as live animals, a luxury car [[http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1955&dat=19360521&id=DuUxAAAAIBAJ&sjid=zuIFAAAAIBAJ&pg=4908,4360787 and even Jimmy Haizlip's]] [[AirborneAircraftCarrier racing airplane]]. In 1936, it was the fastest and most comfortable way across the Atlantic, and was considered [[{{Irony}} the airship to end all airships.]] Unfortunately, it was filled with [[MadeOfExplodium extremely flammable Hydrogen]] instead of the inert Helium it was designed for. We all know how it ended.

* In ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi''- due to an impending ritual by the cult of [[GodOfEvil Crowned Death]] Ami is forced to construct a fleet of these to conduct her forces across a quarter of the planet in less than three days, to prevent eight thousand innocents from being tortured to death. They also engage an [[GhostPirate undead navy]] in mid-air combat (due to undead warlocks levitateing the ships). They were (naturally) equipped with swivleing turrets for their mounted canons, Reaperbot repelling lines, and an [[VirtualReality entertainment system]] for Rabixtriel...

to:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has the SHIELD Helicarrier (which, predictably, crashes in chapter 70), with mention of MI13's ''Valiant'' (not from ''Series/DoctorWho'', which is fiction in this 'verse - though jokes are cracked about the name being the same) which is apparently delayed by over six months thanks to BAE screwing up the engines according to chapter 77. [[spoiler: HYDRA have a bigger, badder Helicarrier called the ''Dreadnought''. It was originally a prototype SHIELD Helicarrier until the HYDRA Agents within SHIELD faked its explosive destruction and smuggled it away. It's armed with Destroyer weaponry, has repulsor tech engines, a Nexus Engine of Bifrost tech that allows it to teleport anywhere in the world and, following the events of chapter 70, a vibranium hull.]] Of course, it doesn't last long either [[spoiler: with Magneto scrunching it up like a ball of foil in chapter 77.]]

While airships in general are cool, the CoolAirship turns this UpToEleven. Most of the time, it will have an [[AwesomeButImpractical impossibly cool design]] which would most likely be unable to fly in RealLife. Fortunately, fiction has {{Phlebotinum}} and/or [[HandWave hybrid designs]] (heavier-than-air airships that fly with some level of aerodynamic assistance from lifting bodies, wings, rotors, etc.) for that little problem. Cool Airships also tend to be exceptionally big, sometimes so big that they double as Main/{{Airborne Aircraft Carrier}}s or even [[FloatingContinent airborne cities]].

The CoolAirship is the preferred method of travel for SkyPirates and [[StupidJetpackHitler technologically-savvy Nazis]], and is extremely common in classic [[SpeculativeFiction scientific romances]] and SteamPunk. Technically, airships are far more DieselPunk, with regards to both style and overall use, but they were actually invented in the Victorian era. The first airship flew in 1852 and was propelled by, you guessed it, a steam engine. Yes, that means [[OlderThanTheyThink blimps were around before]] the [[OlderThanRadio radio,]] ''[[UsefulNotes/{{Evolution}} On the Origin of Species]],'' and [[UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln the Lincoln administration.]]

* The page image is Castle Wulfenbach, mobile fortress, administrative center and war machine of the Wulfenbach Empire in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''. It's roughly a kilometer long, has an entire fleet of additional airships to support it, and some of the people who work there haven't set foot on the ground in years.
