2011 Steampunk/Pirate Fest
June 10, 2011 – The Mighty Airship Luftsturm made its debut at the Steampunk/Pirate Festival at Boster Castle in Kingdom City, MO. The airship was made a time machine, and the crew of the Luftsturm landed amidst a festival of pirates.
The crew greeted travelers and wanderers, warning them of the pirates lurking about and making an oath to protect the visitors from any pirate mayhem. They openly invited anyone interested to inspect the crash-landed time machine.
Captain Ludwig von Steelmann continuously invented new and strange devices in his sleep, while the broken Navigator tried to put the ship back on course. First Officer Judge and Gunnery Master McManus were the hired gun-hands, making sure there was no plundering of the ship.
