Wanna see Goodyear's new $21 million blimp without its iconic deep blue and gold birthday suit?  Click here.
Goodyear’s newest blimp Wingfoot Two and its crew are based at Goodyear’s airship base in nearby Carson, Calif. At more than 246 feet long, Wingfoot Two stretches nearly the length of a football field. The blimp’s top speed is 73 miles per hour. Its three vectoring engines allow for excellent maneuverability and an aluminum and carbon fiber semi-rigid frame supports an envelope with the capacity to hold nearly 300,000 cubic feet of helium, the equivalent of more than 25 million baseballs.

Blimp fans can say hello to the new blimp by using the hashtag #WelcomeWingfoot2 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In a video made by Chris Pietsch, Goodyear pilot Taylor Laverty leads a short but informative trip aboard her Spirit of America lighter-than-air craft. Click here.
