Bomber and blimp join Dodger fans during opening day

While the streets around Dodger Stadium were jammed with opening day traffic this afternoon, the skies above also attracted some game-day visitors. Martha Benedict snapped these photos from Montecito Heights, where residents caught sight of the wedged-shape B-2 Bomber that swept over the stadium shortly before the game began at 5 p.m. The Goodyear blimp kept its distance. Said Benedict:

As the Good Year blimp circled lazily over Cypress Park, we did enjoy several northeastern approaches by the B2 Stealth Bomber. The fly over Dodger Stadium was a let down since we could only just make out its minimal profile .
