Airships: A New Journey Begins
The age of the Zeppelins died with the Hindenburg, but now they’re back. Goodyear is retiring its current fleet of blimps and replacing them with the most advanced Zeppelins ever built. This documentary explores the history of lighter-than-air vehicles and gives viewers exclusive access to the construction of the first Zeppelin produced in North America since 1933. A team of German and Americans at Goodyear’s Wingfoot Lake Airdock in Suffield, Ohio joins forces in this historic event. The first Zeppelin, branded as the New Goodyear Blimp, will be christened and placed into service during the summer of 2014.
