A member of the ground crew prepares Snoopy Two, the MetLife Blimp, for takeoff at Long Beach Airport on Saturday.
The dirigible floated over Knott’s Berry Farm’s Camp Snoopy for a few hours celebrating the opening of the new Peanuts movie.
“It’s like being in a boat in the sky”, is how pilot Cesar Mendez described flying the light-than-air ship. “We keep it slow and low – 30 mph and 1000 feet above the ground” he added.
