While all the excitement is happening here in Germany, our intrepid survey team of Scott Danneker (Chief Pilot) and Chris Sandford (ZLT's Ground Crew Chief), remain on the road, working steadily westwards from Galveston to San Francisco. They are checking out all the likely airfield and locations where the airship will have to go. Here are their latest pictures.
Sierra Blanca, TX - the highest ground that all airships have to transit over on their way to the west coast.
The field at Deming NM, well known by airship folks.
Dragoon Pass, AZ, will pose no problem for the Zeppelin.
Goodyear Field, Phoenix, AZ.
