VFR Over the Top

The ship left Moffett Field this morning for Long Beach.

At this time of year, we often battle coastal marine layer. Today was no exception.

The view from the summit towards Monterey Bay wasn't looking good.

However there was a clear path *over* the layer, through the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Look for the airship to arrive later today in Long Beach.
