Can you land and take off from it with some kind of fighter? Now that'd be helluva cool. Xplane needs some guns and missiles.

Cool but too big target and seem no defensive guns! it will be spot easy in very long range than on sea and sure shot down with AA rocket. Is there a escort destroyers in that 7.21?

The supplied ReadMe says this :

----------------------------------------------------------
USS Hornet

specs:
982ft long
240ft height
820ft wingspan
60 million cubic ft of helium= 3.6 million Lbs of lift
1,300,000 Lbs fuel
717,000 Lbs aircraft
230,000 Lbs crew
120,000 Lbs aircraft reloads
100,000 Lbs food + general stores
2,473,000 Lbs blimp empty weight
-----------------------------
4,940,000 MTOW

airwing
9 X F-35
6 X V-22

To fly: You can VTO at 4.3 million Lbs @ sealevel,(engines take time to spool up) but at higher altitudes and weights you need a running start. transition to forward flight is slow (80KTS is the safest speed to have the thrust vectored all the way down) it will crusie at 95-107KTS@65% throttle with prop RPM at 300. as you launch aircraft move the displacement handle down
