Moored in Philadelphia

Academy road ran along the fence and provided a good view of the Eureka while moored. What struck me about the NT as opposed to other blimps I've seen was how "solid" it seemed while on the ground; not "flimsy" at all. A platform was hoisted below an engine and a tech climbed a rope ladder to service it. Its quite an impressive vehicle. Of course I did have to put up with the passing jogger who yelled, "Remember the Hindenburg!"
