Goodyear Blimp / Goodyear Tire Company
The Goodyear Blimp is generally used to refer to any one aircraft of a fleet of blimps operated by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for
advertising purposes and for use as a television camera platform for aerial views of sporting events. Goodyear began
producing airship envelopes in 1911 and introduced its own blimp, Pilgrim, in 1925. Currently, the company operates 3 blimps in the US,
and additionally has blimps operating in other parts of the world, including one in china.
All blimps are outfitted with LED sign technology Goodyear calls "Eaglevision." This allows the aircraft to display bright,
multi-colored, animated words and images.
