Airships: (RL) Airship Ventures



While I'm quite certain that most individuals who read this small blog would be quite chipper to have the opportunity to indulge in a real airship voyage, unfortunately it was relegated to a proverbial pipe-dream... until now.

Airhips Ventures is a small oufit which provides zeppelin voyages around the San Francisco Bay area, with its headquarters at the iconic Moffett Field, the home of the United States lighter-than-air program in WW2. However, it now is home to the Zeppelin NT (recently christened the "Eureka"), which will provide trips around San Fran.

and a bit on Moffett Field's past...

Well aren't I turning into quite the little contributor? As it happens I've a sister who lives in San Jose and - again, as it happens, this year was her year to host Thanksgiving, so I had the opportunity to take my first - and unfortunately, most likely only - Zeppelin ride on 22 Nov.

It was completely amazing and made me wish that they provided service back to the East Coast.

I've been haphazardly combing through the photos and have posted a few at http://s285.photobucket.com/albums/ll59/IlsaMunro/Zeppelin/
