Just an Interesting Pictue
« on: February 29, 2008, 02:54:13 AM »
Hi:

I am pretty sure many folks have seen blimps before.  The following picture is four Goodyear blimps in the same airspace at the same time.  From what I could find out, it had been about 40 years since this has happened.  My records show that I took it Aug 03,from my back yard.

Aug. 03 of 2007? or 2003?

No matter, I am not up on blimpology, but if it hasn't happened in 40 yrs...

Wonder what they were up to?  A caravan for what purpose I wonder.

I am not particularly found of be high off the ground, but if I had the chance to ride in a blimp, I would take it  (along with some prescribed medication from my doc).

Now what are the odds you would be able to capture that on film from your backyard?

Thanks for sharing it!

i've read a lot on dirigibles, not so much on blimps, but both are very cool.

did you know that had it not been for fog, we'd've had dirigible aircraft carriers and not navy ship aircraft carriers?
