Blimp Arrives in Watertown
from Watertown Daily Times
A Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company blimp arrived at Watertown International Airport recently. The visit of Wingfoot One, one of three blimps Goodyear operates, is part of a program today at Fort Drum. Wingfoot One is a semi-rigid craft assembled at Goodyear's Wingfoot Lake airship hangar in Akron, Ohio. Goodyear has built more than 300 lighter-than-air vehicles, including two large rigid airships — the USS Macon and USS Akron. Wingfoot One, christened in 2014, was the first semi-rigid airship to be built in the nearly 100-year history of the Wingfoot Lake hangar.
