Did you get the PDF describing Airship To Orbit from the front page at ? It looks like a popular form of recent UFO sighting, big V shape.

And I think space is considered to be 100 km, or about 62 miles (328,000 feet), according to the X Prize (or 50 miles, if you're Air Force)

flyovers, fly-betweens and looks
