Airships Return to Moffett

Some time back I wrote about the historic Hangar One at Sunnyvale's Moffett Field. Hangar One was home to the Navy airship Macon, until it was destroyed in a crash in 1935.

Now, almost 75 years later, there is once again an airship flying from Moffett Field.  The airship Eureka, operated by Airship Ventures, is housed in Moffett's Hangar Three.  The Eureka is a Zeppelin NT (for new technology) airship.  At 275 feet long, it is less than 1/3 the length of the Macon.

Airship Ventures offers sightseeing flights of Silicon Valley, Monterey, and San Francisco.
