I am a huge aviation geek, from hot air balloons, small air crafts, drones and even the Goodyear Blimp. In 2015, I went up in the Goodyear Blimp for the Daytona 500 for almost 8 hours and I was hooked! After spending that much time in an aircraft that is extremely cramped you learn just about everything you possibly can about the aircraft from the amazing pilot.
I have stayed in touch with the public relations team for Goodyear since then. I was suppose to go up for the NASCAR Miami race, but due to bad weather it never happened. Fast forward to January of this year, I was suppose to travel to Akron where the Goodyear Blimp is built to get a sneak peak of the construction, but I was out of town. A few weeks ago, I got an email inviting me to a VIP event to come check out the recently finished Wingfoot 2 Zeppelin Goodyear Blimp. This is the second style of the Zeppelin built in Akron.
