In Orange County this morning, an innovative blimp-like airship is being prepared for its maiden test flight. It's call the Aeroscraft, and it blends old and new technology in an attempt to create a lighter-than-air cargo hauler that can deliver goods to rural Alaska, or downtown LA.

Joining us is the man behind the Aeroscraft, Igor Pasternak. He's a native of Ukraine who moved to Southern California 20 years ago, pursuing his dream of a lighter than air cargo ship.
