Posting this here for friends and bunker buddies who aren't on facebook....they did a tandem flight of Wingfoot One and Spirit of Innovation today, they had the destinations published....since SOI is going to be going to California next week and she'll probably never be back and there'll never be a blimp made like her again (how sad!) i went to the Goodyear World Headquarters to take pix.....all pix are clickable to view bigger sized.....

Wingfoot One approaching...yes it was really windy.....



SOI now in sight....seriously, my hands WERE shaking.....and just the sight of those two coming brought tears to my eyes---blimpologists (Goodyear blimp fans) will understand that....



they circled HQ 4 times.....

Leaving headquarters going to their next stop on their list (HQ, food bank, Stan Hywet).....

P8210675

I went to go home, hoping they might come over North Hill on the way back and got them circling downtown....

P8210680

I was upstairs, knowing they were at Stan Hywet (us blimpologists were keeping each other informed!) and was half listening for them to leave there, and I heard 'em approaching!!! Of course I run out like a damn fool cuz earlier in the week when they announced the tandem flights I tweeted to them and posted on their FB wall this....not subtle AT ALL.....never hurts to ask, eh? i denoted in my tweet & post that i would be at the red dot location....

Is it coming towards me?

P8210701

YES!!!!!!! Wingfoot One went right over me!!!!!! Yes, that's my hand waving at them...i turned the video off before we all got blinded by the sun.....



right over me....

and i got retweeted by them today too!!! A glorious blimp day, though tinged with melancholy as it might the last time I see SOI....

2 More Peace Spoken or Speak your peace

Bob Duggan is a public figure, google him, find that out for yourself. He objected to the photos used in a story on the Underground Bunker. Mind you not THE STORY, the photos---even though they were credited appropriately. Tony Ortega creatively had an artist recreate the photos as drawings, as seen here. Finally, Duggan had google help him get the story buried in the search results as he cried 'copyright infringement' about the photos---even though they had been replaced by drawings. Story here.

So I decided to do Drawing Bob Duggan. Not affiliated with Mr. Ortega in anyway. People participated and here are the results. We might get some more and I will gladly add to these. Why are these are livejournal? Cuz I know flickr will wuss out if there's a complaint filed---though I DID make a flickr album. Flickr album here. (I hadn't used flickr in a few years and now I remember why! PITA) Google pix, well why even bother? But Livejournal WILL NOT wuss out. They FIGHT for freedom of speech. These are hand drawn images and the shoops are done with copyright free images. Spread 'em far and wide. There's also a Pinterest board, a facebook album, the aforementioned flickr album, direct link to the LJ album and every one has been tweeted here. Obviously these images belong to the creators, please ensure they are given credit if you share.
