Blimp | Permalink

It was the Goodyear's Blimp hovering in downtown Cleveland, exactly in Q Arena to cover NBA Final from sky. Blimp is tiny version of Zeppelin. In United States only have 3 blimps that operate. The Spirit of Goodyear, based in Akron, Ohio; the Spirit of America, based in Carson, California; and the Spirit of Innovation, in Pompano Beach, Florida. This tradition of Blimp in Ohio started in 1925 when Goodyear built its first helium-filled public relations airship, the Pilgrim.

Great grab!

I remember, years ago, when one of the blimps visited Baton Rouge - it was the highlight of the week!
