Where Is the Goodyear Blimp Today?
The Goodyear blimp’s location varies, but Goodyear provides an online map of scheduled flights. When the user selects a scheduled location, information appears regarding the scheduled event’s date and time.
Goodyear invites the public to call any of its bases to learn the current blimp schedule. The company provides a Facebook page where fans discuss sightings of the blimp overhead. In 2014, Goodyear operated three blimps. Wingfoot One was built in Akron, Ohio, the Spirit of America is based in Carson, Calif., and the Spirit of Innovation is based in Pompano Beach, Fla. Goodyear was founded in 1898 and built its first balloon in 1912.
