YOUCAR 178 755 subscribers

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company's newest blimp took to the skies Monday for its maiden flight. The test flight is part of a comprehensive training program Goodyear pilots and crew will undergo over the next two months. The new blimp will officially be ready to begin travelling to cities around the United States after a formal christening ceremony this summer. The blimp is an all-new, state-of-the-art version that is larger, faster, more maneuverable than previous models, and builds on the company's legacy as the world's leading builder and operator of airships. The blimp's speed was on display Monday as the ship, aided by a tail wind, eclipsed 80 miles per hour. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ► FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ► TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ► GOOGLE+: http://plus.google.com/+YouCarPress

  • This is neither a blimp nor a zeppelin. Goodyear themselves calls this a "semi-rigid airship". And they also call it a blimp for some reason. The zeppelins where rigid airships made by a certain manufacturer in germany. A blimp is just a common name for a non-rigid airship.

  • Whatever happened to them? I remember when I was a little kid that there used to be Goodyear Blimps flying over my house every summer but then it stopped

  • The Zeppelin NT is cool and stuff, sleek & advanced, but it's shape is not as attractive as the old Goodyear blimps. The old ones had much more personality.

  • At 01:36 through 01:54 the video producer should have used a little better judgement on the videoing . The image in the referenced time frame was a bit "OBSCENE". It looks very much like,,,,well,,,,,,YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. Not real happy with that. I am not going to report anyone, but the video should have a WARNING message. Young children are on the internet all the time. I don't think anybody under 12 should see this.

  • I kind of wish they had painted it silver. I saw the previous model at an airshow when I was a kid and never forgot what it looked like. Plus it looks cool in the old color rather than blue and yellow.

  • I saw the new Goodyear blimp last month at the airport where I work. It seemed to be much quieter than the old style blimp. I didn't hear any engine sound while it flew.

  • I think they look really cool. And those vectoring props and that tail unit kinda make it like a big pneumatic helicopter. BTW, its now the Goodyear Semi-rigid.

  • That is really efficient.  Once they have the design it doesn't take long to put these guys up.  Feel really ripped off that this industry was ruined in the 20's.  We got to get this off the ground again.  Should be to a point where one in ten families has one.
