Travel Tips for Tustin

Tustin MCAS

by american_tourister

After 9-11 the Goodyear Blimp was moved to the old Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin for security purposes. I was fortunate enough to be invited out while it was there and was allowed to tour the hangers.

My traveloge has all the photos.

Hiding in the hangers

by american_tourister

"The Goodyear Blimp goes undercover"

The blimp "Eagle" was here for a few weeks. I was fortunate to get to visit while it was there. These hangers are so huge! That itty bitty thing at the end is the blimp! There are more blimp travelogues on my Los Angeles page.

"Starboard Profile"

"Me & Dave"

This is me and my pal Dave Holt. He works some for Goodyear and has a lot of fun with these guys.

"The Gondola"

It can hold 5 passengers and the pilot.

"Lighting Details"

They had just replaced all of the old incandescent bulb lamps with new LEDs.

"Commisioning Plaque"

"Hey! I'm flying!"

Not really, just pretending.

"The support trailer"

This is the inside of the support and logistics trailer.

"Temporary Anchor"

They put this together when they are lanuching or landing somewhere other than their home base.

"Marine Artwork"

The Marines had painted logos and slogans all over the place. Some were in good condition.

"More Marine Artwork"

"Last Marine Artwork"

"Wood detail"

These are the support beams. This structure was designed to last 10 years. It has lasted over 60 years so far.
