One of Google co-founder Sergey Brin's airships was spotted flying around near California airport

SALINAS, Calif. — LATEST Oct. 6, 10:34 a.m.While the airship spotted in Salinas belongs to LTA Research, SFGATE has since learned it is not the 400-foot Pathfinder 1. Oct. 5, 1:00 p.m. A few years ago, Google co-founder Sergey Brin turned his attention from search engines to airships. He started an airship company, LTA Research and Exploration, which began covertly building dirigibles in Silicon Valley in 2017. By this spring, we knew LTA’s first prototype airship had been built and was estimated to be ready for flight by the end of 2021, but no one had reported seeing it take to the sky.
