Late Saturday afternoon, a twelve-passenger Zeppelin NT just outside the window here – it's Airship Ventures. Their airship, built by Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH, is one of four zeppelins in the world. So it's not a blimp, a collection of gas bags – it's a dirigible, with a semi-rigid frame and all that stuff, like the Hindenburg.
Strange things happen here in Hollywood – it came up over Griffith Park Observatory, crossed Hollywood and headed west over Sunset Boulevard. And one thinks of that 1997 Disney movie, The Rocketeer – the final scene where the Nazis almost escape in a Zeppelin that swoops them away from the Griffith Park Observatory, and the hero and his girl are rescued by Howard Hughes flying up in his prototype auto-gyro, dangling a rope ladder for them to escape. They do, and the Nazi Zeppelin goes down in flames.
This one just headed off down Sunset.
