I saw that same blimp last week while I was in the San Diego area.
yea. I am in the Huntington Beach area.

Does anyone know what company this blimp is trying to advertise? I dont see any logos.
That might of been the area I saw it then,I was heading west on 91 to LAX.

yeah, it is taking off daily at Long Beach Airport (that is my office view from Ocean Boulevard) - the thing is bloody NOISY! it always flies over the Pike area in LGB around lunch time.

yea. there is also the Goodyear Blimp that takes off from Carson. You can see it on the freeway.

Ruudje, you are right. Those things are REALLY noisy. You can hear them from pretty far away.

Any of you guys been on a Blimp? I havent. I heard it is really nice.

learnt this blimp is owned by Ameriquest... weird, they lay off a lot of people, but apparently their blimp is important enough to keep it airborne.
Nope, never been on one.... flew in a glider plane a few times though - that was really cool.

you are correct Ruudje. And, apparently they have at least 3 blimps around the USA. Here are some pics of at least 3 that I found. The first pic is a much clearer picture than the picture I took.
