From partnering with Sports Illustrated and The New York Times for impressive aerial photography to local television news stories featuring the blimp and its crew, the MetLife blimps are no strangers to the media around the country.

Since its conception in 1987, the goal of the MetLife Blimp program has been to increase awareness of the company. Focusing on providing aerial coverage of high profile events, "Snoopy One" and "Snoopy Two" cover over 80 events annually for NBC, CBS, ABC, ESPN and TGC.

In between its aerial television coverage, MetLife provides blimp-related support for local events and groups, such as those for schools, community-based groups and non-profit organizations.

Media visits are also available.
