Blimps Around Las Vegas
Civilian Aircraft Around Las Vegas, Aircraft Around Las Vegas

Out and about in the desert and mountains around Las Vegas, a variety for flying machines may fly over your head and intrude upon your solitude. However, learning to identify aircraft in flight adds an odd twist to enjoying the outdoors while hiking and birding around Las Vegas -- how many species and varieties can you list?

It used to be that there was always a blimp or two over Las Vegas. In recent years, however, they seem to have left the area. In October 2008, the M Blimp showed up advertising a new casino resort. An electronic signboard on a blimp is an interesting feature that I've never seen before.
