View Full Version : Blimp at Capital One Bowl?

The new flight plan shows the blimp going to fly over the Capital One Bowl. This before said it was pending waiver, but that does not appear yet. So have we gotten clearance to fly over??? :)

According to the FAA we can go over the stadium up to one hour before the game begins and then one hour after it has ended. We plan to do this.

Anyone know a Bull Gator or a big donator to Michigan get with them and let's try to get a clearence from FAA. Someone big with the one of the Uni's could make it happen. If you know someone get with Blimp Media Coordinator

During the game, would it still be possible for the RPB to continue to fly around the city - within sight of the Bowl - so long as the FAA no-fly zone is respected???

Forgive me if this was already asked/discussed.

It would only be appropriate considering the UofM folks were the first to fly a RP banner over a football game.

Why is the blimp down in Polk City?

Also - when will we get to tour the blimp? And at which airport?
