Zander, thanks for your reply. This is very interesting to learn and no, I definitely don't need a bomb shelter :)
But... can you walk on an aircrete dome? Or install a roof structure like on Steve Areen's dome?

aircrete vs. ferrocement
So I want to build a dome house (in a tropical climate), where sun, lots of rain, humidity, insects and earthquakes are to be considered.
I really like the aircrete idea, however some local builders pointed out to me that ferrocement
with a rebar structure would be more suitable. Offering both, better stability and flexibility of the structure, and it´s much better tested in terms of durability. Those domes can carry a lot of weight...
Plus, there is always the risk that the aircrete blocks are not done the right way and you have no way to test their quality...
Any thoughts on that?
