A blimp, or non-rigid airship, is a floating airship without an internal supporting framework, or a keel. A non-rigid airship differs from a semi-rigid airship and a rigid airship (e.g., a Zeppelin) in that it does not have any rigid structure, neither a complete framework nor a partial keel, to help the airbag maintain its shape. Rather, these aircraft rely on both a higher pressure of the lifting gas (usually helium, rather than hydrogen) inside the envelope and the strength of the envelope itself. The part underneath is called the buckle. (From Wikipedia)

Something that is seldom seen around here. This is a good presentation of the colored blimp against the blue sky. The angle of shot allows to see the blimp with many perspectives.

nice the view of the floating airship with its colours to contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.I like the brilliant light of the scene as the vivid colours of the airship.

I remember more frequent sightings of blimps in my youth, especially the Goodyear one. The Met Life adds interest with the Snoopy icon.

Interesting aircraft with fine colours against the blue sky. The low clouds add a nice part of the capture.

An identified flying object Eleu, a charming snoopy on that balloon, it's should be nice to experience this way of transportation, it may be ideal to take photos from it , the view should be amazing too
All the best
