After writing a recent post on Lynn Murphy (UFO Hoaxer) I also referenced a Mr Daniel Geery who as you may remember unintentionally caused several UFO reports/sightings when he lost control of his Hyperblimp.
Daniel Geery has since been in contact and assures everyone that this was simply an accident and in no way was he trying to fool, alarm or frighten anybody. Daniel was initially inspired by a John McPhee book, “The Deltoid Pumpkin Seed” back in 1995. The result of this inspiration is the Hyperblimp, an ultra-streamlined, low drag, helium-filled airship that is capable of moving in any direction thanks to its rear propeller. For loads of videos of the Hyperblimp in action as well as a brief history and related media then visit Hyperblimp.com.
