Wide-eyed airplane pilots will reach for the armrests when the Goodyear blimp pitches down 30 degrees, filling the windscreen with beach and surf. See for yourself in this video as Marty Chandler, chief pilot at Goodyear's Pompano Beach, FL, blimp port describes airship operations and a day in the life of a lighter-than-air pilot. AOPA Editor in Chief Tom Haines flew the lumbering blimp with Chandler for a story in the May issue of AOPA Pilot as part of our coverage of the 100th anniversary of Goodyear Aviation. Chandler's video is an advance look at the magazine article, which should be in your mailbox in the next couple of weeks (including details of the Goodyear Inflatoplane). Hang on tight!
