Remember back in the day when San Francisco had it’s very own “world-class” airship, the largest in the world? Well, it looks like we’re losing her to Los Angeles and Fun Diego, slowly but surely.
One of our dirigibles/ is missing/ tonight/ from the skies of the bay area.
I’ll miss your piggy tail most of all, Eureka. Sure you’ll come back and visit from time to time, but we want you all to ourselves.
Tell us Airship Ventures, tell us what we did wrong! How can we change?
*Feel free to add this to your list of Pointless Inter-City Rivalries. It’s #87 on mine.
“Our New-Look Airship Returns to the Los Angeles Skies
“It’s been a while since Eureka sailed the skies, spending the past four weeks under wraps in Hangar Two for her annual maintenance. During her month-long tune-up, the airship not only got some new parts, she also got a new look. For the second time this year, we are partnering with Farmers Insurance to fly their brand above communities they serve in California– first stop, Los Angeles!
Join us aboard Eureka March 26 – April 4 for flightseeing SoCal style. Choose to fly along the coast, above L.A. landmarks and Tinseltown icons, or perhaps celebrate spring with an Easter egg hunt from 1000-feet!”
Bye bye Empire, bye bye – after the jump.
