Mitt Romney Blimp-Like Aircraft Crash Lands in Davie [View all]

Source: NBC

A blimp-like aircraft carrying a Mitt Romney campaign message crash landed in a field in Davie Sunday night, officials said.

No one was injured when the thermal airship, which had a photo of the GOP presidential hopeful and the slogan "America Needs Romney," went down in the 3800 block of Southwest 92nd Avenue around 7:30 p.m., Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.

"It experienced some high winds and was having a difficult time and crash landed here in the field just south of Bamford Park in Davie," Engle said. "They were experiencing some problems due to the wind which forced them to crash land here in the field."

The airship had been traveling from Boca Raton, the site of Monday's third and final debate between Romney and President Barack Obama, to North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines.
