Look! The Goodyear Blimp!

Photo of a Goodyear blimp above rooftop

Ahh, how long I've waited to utter those words and actually mean them.

One of the celebrated Goodyear Blimps was flying over Wetherby this afternoon. I'm not sure what the occasion was, but one of my colleagues noticed it from the office window. I couldn't resist running out into the street to point at the sky and deliver the infamous salutation with gusto.

Getting a halfway decent photo was another thing. It was a zippy little blimp, and it kept turning away. Perhaps it was camera-shy, or spiralling out of control.

Airships are fucking cool.
