If you notice a huge yellow creature floating around the skies of Alton, Illinois, do not be alarmed: That's the Despicablimp, here to promote the movie Despicable Me 2. That massive yellow creature in the sky is actually a one-eyed Minion, one of the stars of Despicable Me 2, which is now in theaters. The Despicablimp is 165-feet long, 55-feet-tall, and it's one of only 15 airships flying in the world today. Our flight this morning lasted about 30 minutes, flying 1000 feet above the city of Alton. After its stop in the St. Louis area, the Despicablimp next heads for Chicago, Cleveland and Philadelphia.
