Goodyear Blimp -- Decmber 1, 2013

The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio has produced airships, mostly blimps but some Zeppelins, rigid airships. since 1911.  Here is a typical military blimp.  Goodyear has operated its own blimps for publicity since 1925.  There are three in the current fleet.  Goodyear is planning to switch to Zeppelin LTs next year.
