I was out playing basketball and just saw the Goodyear blimp fly over my head...anybody know why it is here? I would guess because of the NHL finals, but that starts next Sunday, and the first game here in Raleigh is 2 Thursdays from now...And hockey isn't exactly an outdoor sport, but I guess the blimp would provide shots of the arena...

Anybody have a guess?

my best guess would be it was on its way to dover for the nascar race today, but rdu is a good distance from dover.

This Blimp is flying over "Kamper Open" in Potomac MD right now.

It was flying southeast, at an altitude of approximately 500 ft.
I doubt it was going to the NASCAR race...Dover is a bit away from Raleigh.

I think a blimp is flying over the Kamper open, but I think Goodyear has more than one. There is no mistaking a goodyear blimp flying over your head, believe me. Strangest thing in the world was seeing this blimp for the first time flying over the treeline...It is so darn slow! And quite loud for a flying balloon...
