other entities for use of the blimps, (3) the company's funding for its 
global expansion, and (4) the potential annual revenues from airship 
use.
    Vision Airships, a company traded in the Over-the-Counter market 
under the ticker symbol VPSN, has made no public filings with the

company's shares.
    The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the 
protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the 
securities of the above listed company.
    Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in the above listed 
company is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EST July 23, 2007
