ISAF observation blimp in Kabul freed by strong wind
The blimp, with cameras used to monitor the city, was launched into the air about two years ago and tied to the ground with a cable. However, on Thursday at about 10am, it went missing due to the strong winds, a shopkeeper in the Jada-i-Maiwand area, Abdul Rauf, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The strong wind also tore up new saplings planted along the road, another shopkeeper, Asal Shah said.
ISAF confirmed the blimp had gone missing, but said it had been found and was being returned to the skies.
