We were In a 66 Austin Healey Convertible, so shot some overheads

I attended the Monterey Historics Races at Laguna Seca Raceway on August 15th. We were in a 66 Austin Healey Convertible, so shot some overheads. We couldn't figure out the logo at first - I mentioned to my friend that you could rent the airship for private flights. he wanted to know how many pax it could hold and I told him I wasn't sure. He thought for a moment and came back with "24! 23 and me." Wasn't until later it was all about DNA.

I was trying for a period Zeppelin shot over the racing Porsche but the ship was too far away.

80th Anniversary of Graf Zeppelin Over Tokyo

Not exactly a sighting of Eureka, but it is noteworthy that 80 years ago, August 18-23, 1929, the Graf Zeppelin visited Tokyo.

Our counterpart in Japan, Nippon Airship Corporation, is offering an anniversary flight today. Wish we were there! We'll be raising a box of Nigori this evening to toast the event.

Zeppelin and Antonov

On Saturday morning of August 15, I was at Moffett Field overseeing the departure of the Antonov aircraft loaded with Telesat's Nimiq 5 satellite, built by SS/L. I snapped this picture as the airship slowly departed past the Antonov aircraft. What a cool sight!

Passing Mt. St. Helena (Wine Country)

We're watching it right now - it's headed SSE just passing in front of Mt. St. Helena. Talk about a sight to make you forget what you're doing! Seeing the Eureka is thrilling ... there's a momentary glimpse into times passed as we also anticipate new modes of future travel.

You could almost see the passengers!

It was AWESOME. It was so low you could almost see the passengers. An exciting sight for my grandchildren vacationing from CT. A thrilling way to end their visit and something to tell their friends in CT about.

Saratoga High Band Camp enjoyed it too

It's very cool to watch your zeppelin motor over our backyard. I'm sure that Saratoga High Band Camp enjoyed it too, 120+ kids practicing their new field show on the Saratoga High School football field just 3 blocks away with a zeppelin traversing overhead. Please visit our neighborhood again soon!

We sighted the Zeppelin in Prunedale

On July 28 we were driving north on Highway 101 when we sighted the Zeppelin in Prunedale and it was heading North. We actually followed it and past Gilroy we passed it. We stopped in Morgan Hill along 101 and I was walking the dog. I looked for the ship to the south but couldn't find it. Then I realized that it was right overhead and I missed it. That is when I saw the rear engine. I was amazed how quiet it was. Can you tell me the type of power of the engines? Then we caught it again at Moffett field and passed it as we headed into San Francisco.

Great day.

How fun to have our very own zeppelin!

I just happened to be driving home to Sunnyvale on 101 when I saw you up there. Very cool! I mentally noted the website and checked it out when I got home. How fun to have our very own zeppelin!

I have some ideas for you: Sporting events, beaches, and outdoor events like Art and Wine festivals.
