Look, up in the sky!

No, it’s not a bird, a plane, or a copyrighted comic book character – it’s the Appliances Online #legendblimp!

Following its initial inflation and a few flights around Melbourne, the #legendblimp spent two and a half days slowly winging its way to Sydney (FUN FACT: while majestic, blimps are not fast), where John Winning first founded Appliances Online some nine years ago.

To celebrate the #legendblimp’s arrival, Appliances Online recently hosted an official launch party at The Island on Sydney harbour

After recovering from its party, the #legendblimp plans to hang over (see what I did there?) Sydney, not only floating by the iconic CBD landmarks, but the suburbs near and far from the city centre, spreading the word of Appliances Online’s Legendary Service as it goes.

Here’s how:

  • Watch the skies! The #legendblimp will be meandering all over the Sydney area for the upcoming weeks.
  • When you spot the #legendblimp, snap a photo.

Don’t worry if you’re not in Sydney, either – the #legendblimp has plans to visit more of Australia’s great cities in the months to come.

See you in the skies, #legendblimp!

He enjoys looking for new and unusual ways for to solve everyday problems using typical household appliances. When he’s not toiling at the desks of Appliances Online and Big Brown Box, he tries to find time to write the next big bestseller and draw satirical cartoons, but is too easily distracted by TV, music and video games. Mark’s favourite appliance is the Dyson Groom Tool, as he loves the concept of vacuuming your dog. Google+

    So good to see an airship up in Sydney sky’s again. How do you purchase tickets for a flight ?

  2. Mark Bristow says:

    Thanks for your question Chris, and for your kind words.

    At this stage, the Legend Blimp is only providing flights for special circumstances. However, we hope to offer members of the public the chance to fly in the blimp later down the track, so keep an eye on our blog, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages for updates!
