Hi all Wave Whilst out & about today, I snapped this on my mobile. Does anyone have a closer image of this beauty flying overhead or even if it is on the ground.

We watched the Goodyear Blimp pass by in the distance, too far to photograph - no other info

We've seen it from our office in Walsgrave a couple of times in the last week.

I can remember it coming over Coventry when my children were small, around 30 odd years ago. We would hear a low droning noise and the children would dash out into the garden to watch it go overhead. I recall that year the summer was really sunny with clear blue skies so we had an excellent view. Haven't seen it this year so far though. Wave Thumbs up

I hadn't actually realised the Goodyear Blimp was still going! Used to see it a lot at many F1 races in the 70's/80's. I recall being a little frightened by it as a child - probably something do to with the airship in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the child-catcher!
