Bay Area Company Revives The "Lighter Than Air Ship" In Time For Rock Reunion
Can a plague of iron butterflies be far behind? Is that a strawberry alarm clock I hear ringing? And what about moby grapes? Speaking of which, I ran into Hurley from "Lost" in the supermarket yesterday. Literally. Couldn't fit around him. He's a big guy. Picking out pumpkins in the produce aisle. And I guess he's not lost any more. Hey, how 'bout some psychedlic ice cream?
"Californians float a plan: Return of the zeppelin"
Zo fahr, zo gut!
' Invented by Ferdinand von Zeppelin of Germany in the late 19th century, zeppelins were used for commercial passenger transport and military operations until the start of World War II. The zeppelin's golden age ended in 1937 when the LZ-129 Hindenburg — the largest airship ever built — caught fire and burst into flames in front of thousands of spectators in Lakehurst, N.J., killing 35 of 97 people on board. A German company, Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik, began building a new zeppelin about decade ago and has been offering passenger rides since 2001. While the Hindenburg was fueled by flammable hydrogen, the modern version is kept aloft by nonflammable helium. More than 80,000 passengers have ridden without a safety problem, Hall said. '
"LED ZEPPELIN - TYLER 'TAKES OVER FROM PLANT'"
Coincidence? Chance conjunction of zeppelins? I think not.
' Singer Plant has frequently denied the band is to hit the road for a string of gigs, but rumours the other three members - Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham - have been rehearsing together have sent gossips into a spin. Now the comeback looks to be a step closer to reality - with reports suggesting Tyler has taken over vocal duties during practice sessions in London. '
