Ron Paul Blimp Launch from Elizabeth City, N.C. Delayed
(Elizabeth City, N.C., Dec. 8, 2007) – The launch date for the Ron Paul blimp, originally slated to depart Monday, Dec. 10 from the Airship Management Services (AMS) operating and technical facility in Elizabeth City, N.C., is being rescheduled for a date later next week. News of the confirmed flight schedule will be announced soon. For updates, go to www.discoverec.com
Featuring slogans that read, “Who is Ron Paul?” and “Ron Paul Revolution,” the 200-foot-long blimp promotes the Texas congressman’s Republican presidential bid. Larger than the Goodyear blimp, it is the first to carry an advertisement for a presidential candidate.
Liberty Political Advertising, which supports Paul but is not affiliated with the campaign office, is leasing the blimp from AMS, a worldwide leader in the operation of airships. Based in Connecticut, AMS provides flight crews, technical expertise and ground support to airships from its maintenance facility and FAA repair station in Elizabeth City.
