Zeppelin floating over Pacific Athletic Club parking lot this morning


mnorri: That's no Blimp! That's a Zeppelin - rigid airship. Just like the Macon, Akron and Hindenberg. Blimps are gasbags that hold their shape only because the cut of the cloth and the gas that fills them. The Eureka (shown here) and other rigid airships actually have a metal framework that the gas bags sit inside. The advantage of the rigid airframe is that they can be built much larger than blimps.

Way cool things to see floating around though, aren't they?
Neeta Lind: Ha, thanks corrected. It's funny because I called it a zeppelin in the first place and my family said, you mean blimp. I easily accept being wrong.
