Here she comes! They didn't land, they hovered and showed off their new toy!
Didn't snag a pix of them waving; but one of the crew was waving out the open window on the door. Door is surrounded by red. And no, not officially is it Wingfoot 3; so it doesn't say that on the gondola yet.
It has a German registration until it passes FAA tests, as a German company made her.
THIS is absolute total bliss for a blimpologist, hovering for over 5 minutes. I didn't record it all. Almost though.
And off she went to continue testing. Thank you for giving my little black heart some joy!!
They can't fly around my house yet. They are restricted by FAA to between the base and basically Akron-Canton airport. They have to remain in the SE area for testing. I don't know how/why the FAA determined that flight path. Wingfoot One will be back around July 4! TWO BLIMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
