JOPLIN, MO.--- The Met Life Blimp made it's way into the Four States yesterday and is currently docked at the Joplin Regional Airport. It hovered over a football field in Wisconsin, and is on it's way down to Texas. Pilot's say flying a blimp is a unique experience.
"It's little combination of kind of like an airplane but it also kind of has the motion of a boat, or a ship on the water," states Bret Viets, Pilot for Metlife Snoopy 2.
The blimp will be taking off tomorrow morning, weather permitting, on it's way to Dallas, Texas for a Met Life event.
