Minute Muffler Blimp

I shot this image at an air show in 1990. I probably should have cropped out the off-kilter horizon, but somehow I think it adds to the goofy charm of the Minute Muffler blimp. Does Minute Muffler still exist? If yes, this counts as an advertising success.

Note the lens flare pentagram. I guess that's the iris opening up and being captured in the glass. Or it could be a photonic energy weapon shot from the bow of the blimp. Pew pew!

At the Namao air base north of Edmonton, Alberta.
