Needless to say, I was thrilled!

I was in San Francisco with my family in early January and unexpectedly saw your ship over the bay; needless to say I was thrilled; my son wanted to take pictures of me with the ship in the background, but I did not want to miss the chance to watch the ship by posing for pictures, as you can see in these snapshots!

Heading down Pacific Coast highway, hope to see it again July 4!

5/25/2009 - (Sorry this is almost a month late, but I just saw your "submit pics" link)

Heading down Pacific Coast highway, home from spending the afternoon with my spouse's mom and grandma, and followed the Eureka from Long Beach to Huntington Beach, where it made a U-turn. We opened our sunroof so the kids could see it better while driving, and we pulled over at the Dog Beach bluffs so I could take a few pictures. You don't get to see an actual zeppelin every day.

Hope to see it again when it's down here over the weekend of the 4th; come fly over HB's parade!

Thanks for adding a new highlight to Vertical Challenge

As always, it was exciting and impressive to see the Eureka come in to land during the air show at San Carlos airport today. The pilots made a valiant effort to land in the windy conditions but when I saw the ground crew pack up the "Stairway to Heaven" I knew that they decided to yield to safety and make the landing elsewhere. Thanks for adding a new highlight to Vertical Challenge.

7... Up?

Saw the "up" blimp over Oakland again. I keep thinking they should lease ad space to the left of "up", where a big "7" could be placed!

A 2nd Ship?

I've read in OC REGISTER through the Airship Times at Zimbio that there is an interest of AV in purchasing a second ship for which it seeks a name. Is there a contest related to that?
