Lead Zeppelin Deflates
A two passenger blimp was cruising merrily along, Friday, May 20th, observing the Delaware River, while displaying advertising for the Bostik Inc. adhesive company.
However, according to the Associated Press and PennLive.Com., things took a downhill turn when the mini-zeppelin started to deflate.
The sagging craft drifted down to the Fishtown neighborhood of Philidelphia.
If the lead zeppelin would have drifted just a few feet farther from its crash site, the crew would have ended-up in the busy lanes of Interstate 95, perhaps finding the famed stairway to heaven.
The interstate was closed briefly and the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident.
Fortunately, the crew suffered no injuries, other than bruised spirits and facing the reality of good times, bad times.
