Is there a blimp convention in Orange County today?

In the past two hours I’ve seen two different blimps. On my way to work I saw a blimp circling around MCAS Tustin (the blimp hangers). It just kept going in circles, I really didn’t understand what it was doing, maybe it was lost and thought that those blimp hangers were still in use.

I really wish I had had my camera with me, because wasn’t just some ordinary Goodyear blimp, it was painted in bright colors, almost like it was painted in graffiti art. The second blimp I saw was a Goodyear blimp, flying above Newport Beach. Not too odd of a sight, but that first blimp was acting weird. Anybody know what it was up to?

    Just flying in circles, eh? Maybe they’re having trouble with one of their engines — like a row boat with one oar.

    That crazy-graffiti looking one has been circling over Angel stadium almost every Friday and Saturday night home game so far this season. I forget who sponsors it.

    The multi-color blimp is a new one from Ameriquest.
