Star Over London Website online.

The Website for the "Star Over London" is now online and you can go ahead an book your flights. The Zeppelin NT #4 is coming to London this summer from July 10th to August 21st, we talked about that earlier. Booking flights is possible through phone or email. You can also check out the three routes that the Zeppelin will take.Each route is described with the sights that you will see as well as a map of the route. The Website also will provide up to date flight information in case flights have to be canceled due to bad weather. A hidden gem of the site is the FAQ especially the second half which contains technical information about the Zeppelin. For example:
Facts and Figures
First flight: 18. September 1997. The airship that is coming is brand new and the Stella Artois: Star Over London is its maiden assignment.
Engine: Lycoming IO-360 with 147kw/200PS

Also in the FAQ you will find information about the Airfield that is used which is Damyns Hall Airfield. Here the website of the Aerodrome there. So even if you don't have the budget to take a flight you can do it like me, and click through the site and dream of that one day when you will have enough money to afford a flight in the Zeppelin NT. Anyone want to get me a flight as a gift? I promise I would take as much video and pictures as I could.
The information about the Zeppelin flight over London has also been compressed onto a handout that I received from ZLT (Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik). Have a look, first the English version and following below the German version of the same document. The Zeppelin NT will of course fly from Friedrichshafen all the way to London during that time I am sure many people will see the Airship, so I am doing a call for pictures and videos, share them link them blog them. Let's make sure that everyone hears about the Zeppelin traveling to London. I will try to embed a Google Maps Widget into the Site and add Videos and Pictures which are geo tagged.
