It's not often that you see a blimp in the air when you walk out to your car to go to lunch. But, that's exactly what I saw the other day. It was one of the Met Life blimps. They've got two, actually. They're both A60+ models named Snoopy 1 and Snoopy 2. It was the Snoopy 1 that graced my sky the other day. The MetLife blimp's primary mission is to appear at sporting events and support special fly-over events for employees and clients. Basically, it's a great way to advertise.
I'm no by blimp fan by any stretch of the imagination, but, if you are, then the MetLife blimp has a lot of resources for you, such as The MetLife Blimp tracker, MetLife Blimp Twitter account and event schedule.
