20 July 2004
The public interest in the visit of the airship "Yokoso! Japan" has been so great that even on Monday, the parking lot of Malmi Airport has been full of cars of hopeful spectators even from other parts of Finland. Alas, "Yokoso! Japan" is under maintenance at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, hidden from public view.
The huge popularity of the Zeppelin visit has surprised the crew of "Yokoso! Japan", who intend to bring the airship back to historic Malmi Airport on Thursday 22 July. Thanks are due to them for this fine gesture!
The airship will remain at Malmi Airport at least over the weekend. Note: A Public Day at Malmi Airport will be arranged on Saturday 24 July.
