Hanger Talk

Well I'm back on the road again in Tustin, CA. The blimp is currently in the hanger for its annual maintenance inspection. For the most part the pilots take a step back and let the maintenance guys do what they do best to get the ship ready for another busy season of blimping. I do try and help out where I can though. While I was out there yesterday, I took a couple of pictures of the blimp hangers here in Tustin which are located at the now closed Marine Corps Air Base. I can only imagine what it was like to see the giant Navy Airships in their prime in these giant hangers. Our airship is tiny compared to those monstrous dirigibles.
