Near Mt. Shasta

We spotted the Eureka flying above Interstate 5 near Mt. Shasta, Ca. on August 14th 2010. The ship was a beautiful sight dressed out in it's Farmer's Insurance logo. The near-silent operation of the craft suited the magnificence of the mountain! We followed the ship north from our home in Mt. Shasta City through Weed, Ca. and past the Weed Airport. We last saw it heading northeast in the direction of the Oregon border. We had a lot of fun relaying our "sighting" to friends and family via calls and texts.

Graceful and Silent

I work on the 5th floor of the VA Hospital and glancing out my window today saw what I thought was a blimp! I found the details by searching on the web. It was really neat to watch it go out over the water and head north to Paine Field. It was moving right along, but still was graceful and silent. I was at my desk at the perfect time! Sorry I do not have any photos!

Coming up the Columbia River

Got a call from a neighbor who lives a couple miles to the south of us saying that there was a blimp coming down the Columbia River. Got my camera out and took the attached pictures.

Nike Campus in Beaverton

After hearing about a blimp cruising around Oregon this week, I was happy to see it floating directly above the Nike Campus in Beaverton around 11am today (August 18). Very cool!

Mt. Sexton Pass

Saw the airship at the Medford Airport on Sunday, Aug.15th, then on Tuesday morning, Aug. 17th it flew over our house. We live about 10 miles north of Grants Pass...that's about 45 miles north of Medford. The airship was just passing over the Mt. Sexton Pass on the I-5. What a sight!

Overlooking our back pasture I sighted the Zeppelin Eureka heading toward the Lower Table Rock with the Coastal Range Mtns. as the background. It was close to 10:30 a.m on August 14th. Very cool and an awesome change of pace for the Southern Oregon Region. Do not have pictures. :(

Really Cool in the Pre-Dawn Light

I had a great ride on Thursday, and then got the chance to see you leave at dawn this morning. Coming into work just before six am. It was really cool with all of the red beacons lit up in the pre-dawn light.

Redding Rogue Balloon?

Sitting at my desk. Approx 2:45pm on Aug. 12th here in Redding. I noticed when one of the employees walked up to the window and asked if it was a real blimp? We said no, "It was a rogue balloon from the Macy's day parade"....

Thanks for the 360!

I want to thank the pilot who just flew over my neighborhood in Menlo Park and did a 360 while my 4yo son waved frantically. That made our day! Very special pilot indeed.
