MetLife blimp lands at Keokuk airport

Posted:
KEOKUK, Ia. (WGEM) -

Have you seen a flying Snoopy? The MetLife Blimp is now at Keokuk Municipal Airport.

The "Snoopy Two" blimp grounded in Keokuk possibly until Wednesday.

The blimp was in Madison, Wisconsin for the Wisconsin/Illinois football game this weekend and en route to Dallas, Texas.

Pilot Bret Viets says the original plan was to stay in Keokuk for just one night, but the winds are still too strong to make any headway south.

Together, "Snoopy One" and "Snoopy Two" travel approximately 120,000 miles a year providing aerial coverage of sporting events.
