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 zeppelins and gives viewers exclusive access to the construction of the first zeppelin built in North America since 1933. A team of German and Americans at Goodyear’s Wingfoot Lake air dock in Suffield, Ohio join forces for this historic event. The first Zeppelin, branded as the New Goodyear Blimp, will be christened and placed into service during the summer of 2014. Larger, faster and capable of carrying more passengers than previous blimp models, the new Goodyear Blimp is an engineering and technical marvel. Our story will take you behind closed doors to witness the design and construction process and give you a brief historical look at these amazing airships.
