Stuck in Dallas

Well weather has kept us here in Dallas till at least tomorrow due to the thunderstorms that are forecast from here to Houston today. I did get a chance to fly some exposure over the Dallas-Fort Worth area yesterday though. By adding another six hours to the logbook, what started as a dismal day turned into a fairly nice one. Since we aren't flying today, I stumbled on a YouTube video on Airshipworld Blog of the AVICTA Complete Cotton Airship. Before getting its new decals, it was previously the airship I trained on in Orlando and passed my checkride in. The video is of the blimp flying over the Mississippi River near Vicksburg, MS. They are currently in the middle of a 3000 mile tour of the Southeast United States promoting the AVICTA product and giving passenger rides for the Believe in Tomorrow Children's Foundation.
