Hey there, blimpy boy! Flying through the sky so fancy free...
Is it too late for me to become an Evening Magazine host to hitch a ride on the blimp? Or maybe I could win one of those local charity auctions? I gotta get up in one of those helium filled beauties!
I also like the idea of landlocked rich people flying around in luxury blimps in lieu of yachts. And how wonderful would it be to take an around the world "cruise" in a sky hotel. What a dream vacation that would be!
Fascinating! Well-done - I always learn so much from your articles.
Great writeup! The Goodyear Blimp was a childhood obsession too. The Avon bottle was a particularity prized possession, and like you, I was in awe when the blimp would buzz overhead!
