Blimp flight in Spokane Valley

No, the aliens have not landed. No, it's not a government surveillance drone. When I heard a blimp was going to be in the air Wednesday in Spokane Valley, I was naturally expecting something large like the Goodyear blimp. But it's not. Crews wil be operating a 15-foot long blue and white blimp next to the Sullivan Bridge sometime Wednesday afternoon for two hours to get a good look at the bridge.

The blimp will be tethered to an operator on the ground, who will move the blimp around and use the camera equipment installed on it to take pictures of the bridge. The project is being organized by CH2M Hill, which has a contract with the City of Spokane Valley to build a replacement for the west bridge that currently carries southbound traffic.

Just remember, pull over and park if you want to watch the blimp's flight. Don't try to do it while you're driving. There are parking lots nearby.
