Navy Blimp To Resume Testing In Maryland

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A familiar sight returns to the skies.

The Navy blimp will once again be hovering over parts of Maryland next week.

The airship will fly near Frederick, Beltsville and Baltimore for a week to conduct experimental avionic systems testing.

Researchers say findings could help protect forward deployed U.S. troops around the globe.

The 178-foot blimp is the Navy’s only manned airship.

It can remain aloft and nearly stationary for more than 12 hours at a time.
