    You mean like this:

    It's essentially a big balloon filled with lighther than air gasses.

    A cab or "gondola" hangs beneath the balloon.

    The cab has propellers attached to it, sort of like a prop-driven airplane.

    The propeller provides thrust, and direction is controlled by rudders, one set for up-down and another for left-right.

    It was filled with explosive helium, crashed into something, something sparked, and it went up like a beautiful exploding blimp. And I'm pretty sure the whole thing was gone in less than five mins.
