My husband and I were in southern Minnesota over the weekend. Right we were just south of Shakopee (where we live) we saw the airship. The first thing I thought was that I was in an episode of Fringe and was on the other side. Haha.
Some friends and I were wakesurfing behind my yellow and white boat on Spring Lake just south of Prior Lake, MN on 7/18/11. There were only a couple of other boats on the water. The airship passed over several times pretty low and was tracking with us. I'm sure they got some awesome shots if they were filming. I'd love to see the footage sometime, if they got any. Thanks!
I saw the Eureka from about 10 miles away. I was driving towards it and got excited because it was going to fly over my home town. I called home and made sure my mom and kids would run out to get a look. When I got to town(Fall River, Wisconsin) it flew right over me. It's an awesome ship.
We saw the Zeppelin this morning in Shakopee, MN around 11 AM. My son was playing soccer at the Community Center when we saw it. The kids thought it was very cool and it attracted lots of attention. I didn't think to snap a photo of it.
My coworker knows that I love airships and while she was out for lunch she called me to run out of the office and watch it fly over Mystic Lake Casino, Prior Lake, MN. We had all read about it in the newspaper that morning and I had the article in my hand. It was too far away to get a good pic but I was able to go to the website and I signed up online for a standby flight.
I went out to see the Eureka arrive at Flying Cloud Airport in Minnesota! I had to race around the airport to get the best views, and its a very grand airship. I suspect that my friend may have been flying out at the airport today, I'll be very envious if he got to see it arrive from the air. I hope to see more of the Eureka this weekend at the MN Air Expo!
We saw the airship fly over Rosemount Minnesota tonight during soccer practice. All of the kindergarten/1st grade boys stopped playing and just stared at the sky. My daughter started singing "we are farmers, bum, bumpa, bummpam..." So funny!
This beauty is awesome. We saw it on the ground yesterday morning here in Milwaukee, (we eat breakfast Saturdays at the restaraunt right on the edge of the airport) and didn't know what we were looking at! I'd seen the blimps before many times, but didn't realize this was a rigid frame ship. Went back this morning early to get the attached pictures. Beautiful, I wish I had found out in time to make arrangements for a tour.
I saw airship Eureka at 12:15 this afternoon, floating above the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I can only imagine what it must have been like during the golden age of airships in the 1920s and 1930s, when airship sightings were more common.
We see a lot of interesting things out our window from the 30th floor of the USB building downtown Milwaukee, WI, but today we saw the Farmers Ins. Blimp! Quite a surprise so I googled it and came up with this website! Was wondering if it is here for Summerfest (our 11 day lakefront music festival) or had another purpose? Great to see you (it) in our skies!! Safe travel!
Around 11 p.m. CDT on July 6, 2011, we were outside with the dog and saw an enormous sight slowly flying overhead. When researched it appears that the Zeppelin Airship is what was flying over head. Also the tracking system you have on your website confirms that it was flying over Island Lake, IL at the time my son and I saw it.
On the morning of July 3rd, 2011 as I was getting ready to go riding on my trike motorcycle I heard this strange noise. I looked up and there above my house was the Farmers Insurance Zepplin flying by a couple of hundred feet above me!! Wished I'd had my camera out !! It was really awesome !! I'd never seen an airship from that perspective before !!! WOW !!
This was in South Elgin, IL. Amazing !!!
I live 15 miles south of Holland on Lake Michigan. I was working in the yard when I heard the ship approaching from the North. This was a first for me to see a air ship over the lake. Thursday June 30th, 1:15PM
On it's visit to Muskegon, MI. We were honored by the presence of the airship. We hope you had a great stop and welcome back anytime. We have had many calls to the office today from people who saw it and wanted us to know that they visit was appreciated as one of the most exciting things they had ever seen!
The airship flies over Veits Landing on Spring Lake in Ferrysburg, Mich. It was flying out of the Muskegon County Airport south along the Lake Michigan shoreline to Grand Haven, circling around Spring Lake and Ferrysburg before heading back up north.
