Ride the American Zeppelin yourself!


Summary:

Was skimming through the magazine rack and saw that Air & Space Magazine has a feature story this month on how cool and scientific it is to ride the American Zeppelin, The Eureka From Airship Ventures.

It struck me that some readers might like to see what it is really like... so here ya go!  From November 2009, a scoped video of what it is like to take a five year old up 1000 feet over Long Beach. 

See it all, including a talk with pilot Kate Board and closeups of the SeaLaunch ship (now Russian owned). 



King Kong 3d and The Eureka Airship at Universal


Summary:

Sammie had Peter Jackson on the brain all last week and so when Universal sent me a freebie we grabbed the two annuals and took the Zaner to check out the new King Kong 3d part of the Studio Tour.

Worth it?  Yeah, definitely.  I would have paid the no-lines rate for it.

Oh.. as we were leaving I looked up and saw the Airship Ventures Zeppelin!



The boy loves flight... and I couldn't sleep


Summary:

Two days before riding the 757 bus to Boulder for the 11th Mars Society convention, my boy and I took a real plane ride.

Zane loves the Boeing Museum of Flight ... or maybe he just knows that if he asks for a toy related to daddy's interests he'll be more likely to get it, and the Museum of Flight has a great big well stocked gift store :)

But for whatever reason we seem to end up on Boeing Field about every other week this summer. And after all of the times of seeing the classic plane rides being offered, I decided that we were just going to do it.
