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....
