Floatplanes, As A Form Of Aircraft Transportation

A floatplane (float plane or pontoon plane) is a type of seaplane, with one or more slender pontoons (known as "floats") mounted under the fuselage to provide buoyancy. Floatplanes offer several advantages, since the fuselage is not in contact with water, which simplifies production by not having to incorporate the compromises necessary for watertightness, general impact strength and the hydroplaning characteristics needed for the aircraft to leave the water. Attaching floats to a landplane also allows for much larger production volumes to pay for the development and production of the small number of aircraft operated from water. [from wikipedia]

Zeppelin, As Aircraft Transportation

Rigid lighter than air craft whose lift does not require movement through air.A blimp lacks an internal frame which limits its size, whereas a zeppelin cangrow to almost any size.
