WACO (October 10, 2013)—One of just two airships in the U.S. drifted over downtown Waco Thursday morning.
Externally an airship looks like a blimp, but it’s supported by an internal framework, while the blimp’s shape is maintained by internal gas pressure.
The airship belongs to a Mr. Rooter/Mr. Electric franchisee from Atlanta.
The two companies are franchises of the Waco-based Dwyer Group.
The airship launched at around 7:30 a.m. Thursday from a field behind the Waco Courtyard Marriott.
