First 2 Hour

We're sailing up the Russian River on our first 2 hour ultimate zeppelin tour of Sonoma wine country. We plan to sail the river to the sea, head down the coast to Bodega Bay and then return inland to check out the wineries.


This is the airport that bears the name Charles Schulz after all.

Now if we could get Snoopy and the Red Baron to do a fly by that would be awesome.

While the Fokker Dreidecker is the one more commonly portrayed in lore, I'm partial to the Albatros he flew myself.

Sky Lounge at KSTS

Checking out the Sky Lounge Restaurant at the airport. Good food, nice selection of wine and beer and an outdoor patio area with a view of the airship. What more could you ask for?

Cuppa Joe

Good morning Sonoma. Even the coffee comes with a dose of Snoopy!

UNIQLO Decal Installation Time Lapse

We were out and flying this week with an exciting new brand, Uniqlo.

Uniqlo is an international clothing giant, opening their first store in California in just a few short weeks.

Over 824 panels of vinyl were produced for this branding, each panel 44 by 23 inches.

The red company logo is 19 feet tall, and over 41 feet wide.

When complete, it will have taken a team of 10 over 8 days to cut, produce, and install all of these panels.

Watch the time-lapse video to see the first side applied.
