Redding is not suddenly hosting the World Series or big-time bowl game, but there’s an airship cruising our skies nonetheless.
Don’t call it a blimp, it’s the Airship Ventures’ Farmers Insurance Airship, also known as the Zeppelin Eureka. The Zeppelin is on a month-long tour of the Pacific Northwest.
It’s the first time a Zeppelin airship has offered passengers flights in the region.
