MetLife blimp making pitstop before crossing Lake Michigan
MLive.com a Michigan news website, reported yesterday that one of the Metlife Blimps landed in Park Township Airport coming from the Buick Open golf tournament in Flint and heading to Kohler, Wis., for the U.S. Senior Open Golf Championship. Metlife started the Blimp programm in 1987 and expanded in 1994 the two Metlife Blimp are A60+ Blimps both structurally identical. There is a great website by Metlife about their Blimp Programm.The Website has informations about the Blimps activity and schedules, a nice gallery with pictures, information about the operations and much more. Searching a bit on the web I also found a great Video Report by Golf.com making a flight in the Metlife Blimp. You can view the Video on this page at Golfonline.com. Metlife shows how Blimps can be used to create a synergy between brandrecognition and advertising on the one side and aerial coverage of sporting and special events on the other.
