Holden Airship and APEC?

By kenk - 25 August 2007 24

Is it a coincidence? The last time I recall an airship over Canberra (advertising some obscure brand of chocolate) was when the US President was in town. In fact I vaguely recall it arriving in an enormous aircraft before being let loose (we are near the airport).

Now, with APEC bringing Dubya to Oz, I see the Holden airship buzzing around. I wonder if it is on its way to Sydney to watch out for snipers?

What’s Your opinion?

I’ve been a Ford man all my life. My parent’s brothers, uncles, cousins are all Ford.

But you know, this airship/blimp suddenly makes me want to buy a Holden.

N O T !!!!!!!

What a woftam this blimp thing is.

PS I’m a Holden man 🙂

P.S. to any ASIO or Police reading this, by shot I mean photograph:)

Looked red to me. I’m going to be out and about tomorrow with a 100-400mm Canon lens. If I see it, I’ll try and get a shot.

Didn’t see any red on it from around Scrivener Dam and was too far away and off angle to read anything.
The lit grey stood out nicely against the dark clouds. APEC did cross my mind.

It could also be an attempt of ambush marketing by Holden. You know, have it fly a few laps around field where a football game is being played, that happens to be sponsored by Mazda.

Unless the snipers are already onboard!

The Holden VE ute was just released the other day, so it’s probably related to that….

We saw it last night near Queanbeyan… then today it floated over our house in Tuggers… it’s quite speedy and by the time we got a camera it was a fair way away!

It was doing laps over Civic around 4pm today. Unlike the more famous Goodyear Blimp, the one today features (based on my observations while doing 100kp/h and trying not to go into a tree) a sizable text display system with two large screens made for broadcasting simple messages to those below. Protesters bringing out the big guns?
