Default Mystery solved

According to a story in the Ocala Star Banner the US Navy is wintering a blimp in Dunnellon and the pilots have been flying in the area to practice their proficiency.

The Direct TV blimp has been flying all over Florida to advertise their product. They are not necessarily on their way too or from anywhere. They just fly around where people might see them. Boring job huh?

Thanks for the link. Saw this Blimp while visiting in Mar. Now I know who owns and operates it.

Perhaps, but it's not every job where one can legally get high without consequence!
