No ordinary blimp!

Saw the airship flying over downtown Los Angeles on December 29th, 2010 at about 4:30 in the afternoon.

Realized immediately that this was no ordinary "blimp!"

Not a blimp at all, as it turns out!

This was something really "different!"

Spotted the tail propeller, but missed the side-mounted engines completely!

It appeared really, really long!

The gondola seemed to be quite far forward compared to ordinary "blimps!"

The ship disappeared behind a building and did not re-appear on the other side of the building. It must have turned to the north, and stayed hidden behind that building as it flew away.
