I bet this was an impressive sight, what did they do with the Helium, just vented it t the atmosphere r did they collect it for re-use?

JL Thanks. I don't know (didn't even ask myself that question - I should have, but I was kept playng tennis). However, my guess is that they saved the helium. But now, if understand right what am reading in the Sun Sentinel newspaper, they removed the helium to do some repairs. And, - check this link - - the repairs didn't work out, and the blimp was forced to do an emergency landing the day after. if this was Mitt Romney advertising blimp, as I am guessing.
