PHOTOS: Up In The Sky

Direct TV blimp spotted over Woonsocket


The Direct TV blimp was floating through the skies over Woonsocket Friday afternoon. At about 2 p.m. Friday, the blimp was circling over Woonsocket Fire Headquarters on Cumberland Hill Road. 

Later on this weekend, during the Patriots game against the Broncos, the blimp was also hovering over Foxboro.

Did you see the blimp? Do you have a sudden hankering for sattelite televison?

Very surprised. I figured it would have John Brien's face on it with directions on how to connect the arrows for his write-in campaign.

I can see how the blimp was a a coincidence,but how did Rob also get a flyby?

Easy as 1,2,3. #1-he deflated all the hot air from John Brien. #2-he then inflated the blimp with the hot air. #3-he then launched the blimp into the sky overlooking beautiful Woonsocket.
