Media Day and an Osprey

In celebration of the 140th anniversary of the first Metlife contract being signed, we had some media people out to the blimp for rides on Monday. The Dallas Morning News video can be found here. The article and video from News 8 can be found here. Both are great video segments about their experience in the airship that day.

Also on Monday while the airship was up flying exposure, we had the rare treat of seeing one of Bell Helicopter's new civilian version of the V-22 Osprey, the BA609 Tiltrotor, on a test flight. Its just a really cool aircraft to see up close. I took a few pictures and even was able to get a video of takeoff. Some excellent entertainment to pass the time at the field.
