Since we have been very busy the last 4 days we didn't really have time to catch up with the current news, this week we will try to catch up, and then trying to empty our queue of older "news" items that might not be so new anymore but still worth mentioning. To report about something different then the Airship parade our reader Allan Janus made our life easy today by pointing out two videos on YouTube that we haven't mentioned yet. The first Video is a video of a little RC-Blimp built by Benjamin Lawless. The video is called: The Lawless Airship
This video reminded me of our coverage of the RC-Airship regatta back in July and Daniel Geerys Hyperblimp. I think it would be cool to have something like a world league of rc-airship races, competing in different classes and styles of races. If you have an idea, or would like to get some people together for a race, post in the comments or send us an email, maybe we can work something out and help organizing such an event. If you want to you can add a page to the Airshipworld Wiki about RC airship races.
The Second Video is a video of the Met Life Blimp flying over Coney Island in 1996
If you want to know more, read our post about the Metlife Blimp with links to their website and detailed informations about the blimp program.
