Taking the air

When we were in San Francisco last week we saw this flying above the bay:

Turns out it is a real life zeppelin. It is apparently filled with helium rather than hydrogen like the Hindenburg, and is moored at Moffat Field. I was quite pleased that they were actually using those old airship hangars as at one point (and maybe still) the old hangar was in danger of demolition.

We saw it fly over our neighborhood on the way to school last month. Evidently, a ride costs somewhere close to $750 (!) which didn't stop my daughter from asking for a ride for Christmas.
