For US members: Your tax dollars at work! The Defense Advanced Research Products Agency, or DARPA, has opened up a competition for a proposal to develop a flying aircraft carrier!

http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/11/tech/innovation/flying-aircraf...

Now, I ask you, who better than the esteemed members of this subdomain could come up with the winning proposal? DARPA says you have to keep the cost low and they'd like something they could demonstrate within four years. Our proposal should fit on eight, standard 8.5- x 11-inch pages in 11-point type.

C'mon, I know we can do this! Let's start brainstorming right now! I'll get things rolling with some images of real, proposed, and fanciful flying aircraft carriers - I'm sure these will spark some ideas!!!

The Avengers had a pretty ambitious take!


Sky Captain had some good thoughts...


Zeppelins!!!


The Air Force has done this before...


Let's get started!!!

I think it should be in the shape of a giant skull.

Well, that goes without saying.

Plus, it should be made of ice. And available for party rentals on the weekends when not in use in a war against the Jovian invaders.
