The airship that will be used as part of the Olympics security system hovers above the Church of St George at the top of Lycabettus Hill in central Athens yesterday. Calmer winds allowed the airship, which is equipped with ultra-sensitive cameras, to fly after being grounded for three days. Rented by the police, the airship will complement an unprecedented security operation mounted to safeguard the Games from terrorist attacks.
