The World's Largest Zeppelin Airship

Read this article to see why the world's largest Zeppelin airship is in Beaumont. It is similar to the Hindenburg (yes, the one that exploded) except this new one is filled with helium which is not flammable.

Here is the new and improved version that we saw today.

This is the first Zeppelin airship to be in the US since 1937.

Of course we had to read about it, too. We read The Hindenburg by Patrick O'Brien.
