H2O2 Airship

Use H2O2 for buoyancy and propulsion
  [vote for,

Use the steam from Hydrogen Peroxide mono-propellant, for buoyancy AND have it leave the airship creating a rocket motor.

Idea I had at 17 (1981) for a submarine, but then read about the Kursk. Recently I saw the Seconds from Disaster episode, and realized H2O2 has been sacked for no good reason, just like airships after the Hindenburg explosion.
