Lake Charles, LA

It's not everyday you see such a sighting here in Lake charles, la. The airship spent the night here, and then resumed it's flight the next day to New Orleans. It was a windy and cloudy overcast day. The Zeppelin zig zag her way to the air field, at one point hovering in mid air right over on lookers before landing.

Near Houston

We live in the country 25 miles SW of Houston. Very unusual to look up and see the airship coming right at us!

Wife and daughter saw y'all fly by north of our house around noon. Wife says you seemed to be following State highway 6 at the time. Daughter expected your Zeppelin to be full of dogs since she is an Up! fan. Regretfully the cellphone photo is small and fuzzy.

Seen in Texas

Pretty neat considering I work for Farmers Insurance! I was on my way back to work from lunch and looked up and there it she was.

We were in San Francisco on April 3rd. While walking along the Embarcadero we caught a glimpse of you over the ferry buliding. Nice clear day for your flight! - Holly Gant
