Hoax is a very difficult argument to make stick in this case. I
expect them to argue that there must have been another blimp
operating on the west coast at the time. (Note: Navy blimps have
already been rejected.)

Thus I expect "unknown blimp" to be the "ultimate resort" since
"there is no evidence" for unexplainable flying craft, a.k.a.
TRUFOs (Truly unexplainable UFOs) or AFC (Alien Flying Craft).
