OLD AIRSHIP ENGINEERS SAYING
You need only two tools, a hammer and duct tape.
If it doesn't move and it should, use the hammer.
If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
I am sure that all the Skyship pilots, both past and present would like to pay tribute to the late Roger Munk and to the late George Spyrou for the chance they had or still have to fly such a great machine. TRH
Rovert The Shrimp Did Pilot A Blimp
Rovert the shrimp,
Did pilot a blimp
Up in the sky.
Was where he did fly.
With goggles and map.
His expenses made him a legendary chap.
Now 20 years on, our Rovert's retired.
With a partner and daughter he is finely attired.
But his lifes uninspired!
So in search of adventure.
It's back to the blimp.
Lets all be proud, of this glorious shrimp.
