CargoLifter's only CL75 AirCrane prototype was destroyed earlier this month when strong winds struck the Berlin area, where the German company is based. This is the latest blow for the airship manufacturer which filed for insolvency earlier this year after it failed to raise sufficient funds for its 75t cargo lifting balloon. The company is discussing a rescue bid with investors. CargoLifter says the forecast weather was within the design limits of the airship.
