I was out shooting photos today, and along came the Blimp. I had a perfect sky. I had a bit of trouble tracking it so I had to crop the picture. Pretty cool shot though.

Where was it headed ?

Probably just out for a cruise. I took the pic in Mogadore, OH, which is about 10 miles from the dock.

I have a pic of that also. I took this last March.

I did an I-direct install for one of the companies that worked at the dock. They have a trailer off to the side. I'm not sure what they do. Some kind of engineering company, they could contract for Lockeed; they are there too.

wonder if blimps and commercial airliners take many hits? either accidental or intential?

recently some hunters strayed onto airport property and got into real trouble

I used to see the blimp fairly often (one of them, at least). When we lived in Chesterfield, MO, we were on a ridge overlooking the St. Louis County Airport. When the blimp was in town to do flyovers for the Cardinals and Rams games they would park it at the county airport.

I think there are actually a handful of Goodyear Blimps throughout the U.S., or am I mistaken? Or maybe that was the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile... or maybe both, I dunno. :)

In the United States it operates three well-recognized blimps: the Spirit of Goodyear, based in Akron, Ohio; the Spirit of America, based in Carson, California; and the Spirit of Innovation, in Pompano Beach, Florida.
