Zeppelins are making a comeback

One of my big thrills was a fairly long ride on the Goodyear blimp.  During the flight we had the added thrill of buzzing my house and I was able to shout a hello out the window to my wife.  Unfortunately she wasn’t home.  it was really cool anyway.  Now I see that there is a new company selling half hour rides on a Zeppelin in the SF Bay area for about $500.  check it out on Google.

"The Graf Zeppelin, which first flew in 1928, "is considered the finest airship ever built," according to the U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission. Over a 10-year span, it flew a total of more than 1 million miles, including 144 ocean crossings, a trip over the Artic, and a 12-day voyage around the world."
