The Outback Blimp made a quick stop at Sikeston Aviation Wednesday afternoon to fuel up en route from Florida to Chicago, Ill. Crew members held the aircraft down to the ground on the west side of the airport during the refueling process, which took about five minutes. The blimp was then placed on the runway to take off for its destination and was expected to arrive in Chicago about 11 p.m.
