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.
