Francesco Fondi, of the Italian site Hobby Media, sent us a link to a story about Giulio B, an Italian drug trafficker jailed in Spain, who attempted a prison break using this small dirigible. The site’s in Italian, but I gather the R/C craft was supposed to fly into the prison, with the payload of tools seen in the last image.

I read the article and yes, they caught someone preparing the blimp outside the prison to fly in and drop the supplies. One correction, though: he was a “narcotrafficante” or drug trafficker, not a narc in the English sense.
Thanks for the clarification, Brett. I edited the story accordingly.
