Zeppelin Returns To Los Angeles

I went for a walk the other day and saw what I thought was just another “blimp” in the sky above Los Angeles.  Turns out, it was an actual Zeppelin airship, back over L.A. for the first time since 1929.  The Los Angeles Times reports that the 246 foot long airship “Eureka,” is considerably bigger than a blimp.  It can carry thirteen passengers and a crew of two and is one of only three Zeppelins in existence.  Unlike its infamous hydrogen filled ancestor the Hindenburg, this new airship is filled with non-explosive helium.  The paper reports that “A half-hour trip costs $199; a two-hour flight $950. A daylong excursion between Los Angeles and San Francisco runs $1,500.”
