Michael Stewart of the company World SkyCat suggests burning both gaseous and liquid hydrogen to keep the weight of the craft constant.

The difference is radical says Michael Stewart, chief executive of World SkyCat Ltd, a British company which has designed a new air vehicle, the SkyLiner.

"The breakthrough is to combine the airplane with the airship, creating a hybrid," Stewart said.
Marrying the lift provided by the (lighter-than-air) helium with the aerodynamic lift of an airplane transforms everything, he says.
Two thrusters on either side of a laminated fabric shell afford control at low speeds, while other features do away with the need for a ground crew when the hybrid needs to land.
"An airship of our kind, carrying let's say 200 tons or more, with its air-cushioned landing system is able to land without any runways -- on tundra and semi-rough ground," Stewart said.
Unquestionably, the big market will be in cargo. One is regular freight, where you're essentially competing with 747s --Michael Stewart, World SkyCat Ltd
...
"Unlike conventional airships, where a few million dollars will get you into the air, hybrids cost hundreds of millions to build," Stewart said.
Undaunted, he points to recent orders secured by rival company, UK-based Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd who last year won a contract to build a similar hybrid airship for the U.S. military contractor Northrop Grumman.
The $517 million "Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle" (LEMV) is longer than a football field and will provide high altitude (20,000 feet) surveillance for U.S. troops in Afghanistan by 2012.
But Stewart believes these hybrids' unique strengths are better served elsewhere.
...
Stewart estimates a 50-ton payload vehicle would cost around $1,500 per hour for fuel, maintenance and crew.
