how big a field is required to land a dirigible?


Recommended Posts

I drove by the Goodyear Blimp Carson, CA field 2X a day for years and would see it take off & land often.  The actual field isn't as large as one might think... it's just a little longer and about 2X as wide as the blimp itself.

It basically comes to a hover over the field, drops a line and a bunch of guys pull it down and anchor it.  Take off is kinda cool as it goes in an extreme nose up angle and just floats away.

OK, FIFY then.

He and his sock puppets have a tendency to let me know it if I make a typing error.  I like to remind him when he's not perfect (which we all know is not often).
