    So, my girlfriend and I were sitting on the front porch when all of a sudden in the distance I see a blimp. It keeps getting closer and I realize its the Good year blimp. It appeared to be landing at a private airport not too far from where we live.

    We go in for lunch, watch some tv, and come back out to the porch to check on the watering of our new lawn, and we see a prop plane doing loopty loops.

    Very cool. I grew up in Akron where they were made, but they never gave me a ride (celebs only).

    Nice. I actually was a guest passenger on board the Goodyear blimp in the late 1970s. Sometimes it pays to be a member of the media. :wink:

    I have no idea why it was in town, either. We don't have any big sporting events or anything going on. I'll have to do some digging.

    Talking to a neighbor, he said stunt planes are frequent from time to time around the airport.
