Big Blimpin' in Orlando

I've reached the next milestone in my blimp career this week. I've completed my training to fly our largest ship, the A-170. My first "solo" flight was a transit down from Gainesville to Orlando, Florida earlier this week. I also did my first camera event in the big ship last night as we provided aerial coverage for the Orlando Magic NBA basketball game. It was the first of three events we are covering here in Orlando before heading to Miami for the up coming NFL festivities over the next two weeks.

Above is a picture of Orlando's downtown skyline and below is a picture I took at sunset just before landing earlier this week.
