NYC in the Summertime

I did some flying last weekend over Manhattan. In the pictures you will see a number of New York landmarks including the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Time Square, Central Park and of course the MetLife Buildings. Always a pleasure to get to fly above NYC during a beautiful summer day!

A Milestone Accomplished

Well I just caught up on my logbook tonight and realized that I have now flown over 1000 hours in airships. Kind of a cool, notable accomplishment. Of course many of the pilots I have worked with probably have over 10,000 hours in airships. Like in just about everything no matter how long you've been doing it, there is always more to learn from your peers. I'm just fortunate enough to get to learn from such experienced pilots.

Indy is Quite Friendly

We are in Indianapolis,IN this week for the Senior Open Tournament. On our way back from flying over the tournament today, the camera guy spotted the above message written in what looked like golf balls at the local driving range. It was one of the coolest things I've had the opportunity to see from the air. When I got back on the mast at the airport, I was sure to show all of the crew the friendly message that was laid out for us. I don't know if you may find your way to my blog here but in case you do, thanks from all the crew! We always appreciate the hospitality we receive across the country. That one is going in my favorite blimp memories for sure!
