On October 31st, Airship Ventures will return airship travel to the people --- with the first commercial airship flight in the U.S .in over 70 years, aboard the largest Zeppelin in the world! And you can come along on this flight into history with Abney Park! Hell, if you want us too, we can even play you a few songs on the flight!
(...) The Flight will be in the Bay Area,and the opening day of the California Steampunk Convention.

Also, the Airship Ventures pilot who will steer this baby is the world's first and only female Zeppelin pilot -- she just got her visa in Munich, I'm told, and is headed to the Bay Area for these flights. How cool is that?
"A Zeppelin NT flies into Friedrichshafen airport, landing after a turn into the wind. The pilot holds the airship down by its engines. The small ground crew take the steps to help the passengers alight. "
Art Donovan (previously) writes, "Delivered. A very special design commission for the Project Director of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. A 'white glove' delivery, in fact. The first lamp in 28 years that I simply could not trust to survive the ravages of FedEx."
