Over Santa Cruz

My kids and I watched you fly over our house as you were flying back to the Bay Area from Santa Cruz the other day.

The Zeppelin looked beautiful and my kids were amazed! The Farmers Insurance logo is great marketing!

US Golf Little League Opening Day 2010

On behalf of our entire organization at the local and National level, I would like to express our warmest appreciation to Airship Ventures for helping make the USGLL's 2010 Opening Day a great success!

The moment "Eureka" appeared in the skies above the event, directly over the USGLL logo the oooh's and aaah's could be heard throughout the golf course.

Each and every kid as well as the parents and spectators truly felt being part of something very special.

My hat is off to you and the crew at Airship Ventures for helping make our 2010 Season kick off with a "REALLY BIG" showing.

-- Kevin Flanagan, President, USGLL

Sitting in my 3rd floor office at the County of Sacramento's Administrative Center

I was sitting in my 3rd floor office at the County of Sacramento's Administrative Center when I looked out the window and noticed this zeppelin floating past. I see a lot of planes from Sacramento International but this is the first zeppelin I've seen from my window here. I called all the staff over to get a look - lots of 'oohs' and 'ahhs'. I figured I should get a photo so I pulled out my camera and took the attached picture.

Happy to See Eureka Over Castro Valley

When we moved from our apartment in Oakland 6 months ago, one of the things we had to give up was seeing Eureka fly over our home on a regular basis. Well, today while hiking in the hills above our new home in Castro Valley we caught site of our old friend as she headed back to Moffett Field. Owen was delighted to see her again and got a closer look with the binoculars he received for his recent birthday. Now that he is 3, he is now old enough to ride on the airship that he helped dedicate back in 2008.

There u are!

Seen over Citrus Heights

On Tuesday afternoon Larry was with a customer when my son called and said there was a "blimp" overhead. We ran outside and caught a few shots. We had heard on the radio that the airship was travelling to McClellan airbase, but had not expected to see it in Citrus Heights, which was farther east than it sounded like it was planning to go from the news releases we heard.

It was quite a sight, and reminded me that there used to be a fair amount of them around several decades ago... It was a great experience to see this one, and not one my son will soon forget, as it was so close, too!

McClellan Park

I work at McClellan Park, and the Zeppelin flew right over my building! I've been tracking it all day to be able to go outside in time to see it :)

-- Jessica Shevlin

That was the most fun I have had today!

Just went overhead! came from 99 and crossed right over our building (3rd and S) and the river then went upriver towards McClellan.

Unfortunately, I ran down and saw it as it would not have passed my window. a co-worker came down just then so I borrowed his cell and called up but my other coworker didn't answer. so I ran up to get people and ran down ( I mean ran the whole way) and by the time we were on the street it had turned and was heading north. I saw it coming and I saw it going. would have been cool to have been right under it when it turned but… anyway. that was the most fun I have had today!
