GOLDEN TRIANGLE, Miss. (WCBI) – If you’ve seen a larger than life Snoopy flying overhead this week, you are not alone.
Snoopy 1 is in town for the Mississippi State University Texas A&M football game Saturday (11/3).
The Metlife crew recently made MSU”s mascot an honorary crew member. Bully helped prep the blimp, sat at the controls, and of course gave lots smiles.
A 14-person crew travels with the blimp, which tops out at a speed of 40 miles per hour. With a cruising altitude of up to 2,000 feet, Snoopy 1 and Snoopy 2 cover about 70 sporting events each year.
