Blimp Crashes: If You Say So

Posted not for its news content, but for its bizarre presentation. I have never seen the likes of it before, but the first thing that crossed my mind was just how such a method is open to abuse. It wouldn't take a lot of imagination to see this as Fox News 201-.

Bizarre to say the least.

WORTHINGTON, Ohio, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A blimp that broke away from its moorings at Ohio State University's Don Scott Field has been found, officials said.

The 128-foot-long blimp was missing for more than seven hours before it was found crashed in Worthington about 7 a.m. Sunday, the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch reported.

High winds tore the blimp from its moorings. The blimp displayed advertisements for Hangar 1 Vodka, the State Highway Patrol said.

Officials said the Federal Aviation Administration, Homeland Security and Transportation Security Administration were notified of the potential danger before the craft was discovered wrecked. source

'Asked whether she might try the vodka, Bernhagen joked that she might need a drink after such a ruckus.'

When Mrs Bernhagen sees 'herself' on YouTube she might need a whole bottle I think. The presentation is more bizarre than the event.
Do you know Himself if Mrs Bernhagen's permission is needed to make such a horror video. M

I wouldn't know Maren, but as you say it borders on horror movie.

How utterly bizarre it all is.

And I think it's a jug she'll be needing.
