This past weekend, our fleet of banner towing airplanes made the trip to Phoenix to participate in one of the largest crowd-drawing attractions of the year – Super Bowl week. Our MetLife and DIRECTV blimps were also in the area covering the Waste Management Phoenix Open, DIRECTV’s Super Fan Festival, and of course, the big game.
Hundreds of thousands of people ventured to Phoenix to participate in this exciting week-long tailgate. With its sunny, arid climate and abundance of outdoor activities, Phoenix is an ideal location for aerial advertisers looking to fly above the crowds. Unlike many other aerial advertising opportunities, the Super Bowl attracts local, regional, and national advertisers, making it one of the largest and most competitive advertising events of the year. By choosing aerial advertising during Super Bowl week our clients generated sponsorship exposure at a fraction of the price.
Our blimp and airplane advertising pilots delivered breathtaking pictures from Glendale and Scottsdale. Here are our top 5 aerial photos from Super Bowl week.
1. The eye-catching 40' x 80' Barracuda banner makes a big statement over University Of Phoenix Stadium.
2. The MetLife blimp gets into the action as well.
The MetLife blimps, Snoopy 1 and Snoopy 2, make regular appearances above the biggest sporting events of the year. Known for their coverage of golf tournaments, the MetLife blimps also fly NFL games, MLB games, and outdoor conventions. These iconic airships are some of the most recognizable blimps in the world.
3. The Geico aerial banner takes flight over the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
4. The DIRECTV blimp gets the lay of the land over downtown Phoenix before the big game.
5. It's game day! Picture taken by the DIRECTV blimp just a few hours before kickoff!
The DIRECTV blimp's presence at major sporting events amplifies the excitement on the ground below. Commonly seen flying in the Northeastern portion of the United States, the DIRECTV blimp made its way westward in 2014, making appearances over the MLB World Series in San Francisco, CA and other notable events.
See you next year, Super Bowl!
