This is a few pictures of a night spent in the Dome in Orleans winter 2006.

The Superdome or Hornets nest as its more affectionately known, is a semi-rigid inflatable structure that spans a full size football field and is heated to a comfortable 20 odd degrees.

Entirely lined with Astroturf, this amazing haven is perfect for indoor flying especially in the dead of winter when its -20 degrees outside and snowing.

Hopefully by the next time we visit here I will have something to fly, but this time I was more than happy to snap a few pictures, enjoy.
