It doesn’t have a name and it’s not yet certified for flight, but Goodyear’s new Zeppelin-designed airship is indeed “larger, faster and more maneuverable” than the blimp it will be replacing.
Most importantly, though, the airship needs a name. The tiremaker has launched a nationwide contest to do just that, and the winner will get a day out with the new blimp. Nine runners-up will receive a set of Goodyear tires. Entrants in the “Name the Blimp” contest can submit a name for the new blimp by visiting Goodyear.com/NametheBlimp or Facebook.com/GoodyearBlimp. The contest opened on Friday, March 14 and will close on April 4.
The new helium-filled airship is 246 feet long, more than 50 feet longer than the previous blimps and just 18 yards shorter than a football field. The blimp features a new paint scheme while retaining Goodyear’s logo and traditional blue and yellow branding on a silver envelope, and it will carry a state-of-the-art high-definition light system to allow more elaborate messaging from the sky.
The gondola has seating for up to 12 passengers and with improved viewing through larger, wrap-around windows and more comfortable seating.
