    Goodyear blimp catches fire and crashes

    This claimed the pilots life. This happened and Europe and was not one of the US Blimps. 3 passengers jumped out and survived, without their weight the blimp went way into the air and then the fire started.

    A representative from Goodyear contacted us with the following information: "This airship is not one of our 3 US ships and is a totally different kind of airship. It is owned and operated by Lightship Europe Limited. The airship was one of two chartered by Goodyear from LEL for marketing purposes in Europe."

    This was on the news yesterday.
    The pilot let the passengers jump out of the burning blimp at 2m, knowing it would shoot the blimp up, which it did.
    It burned at 40m, and the pilot crashed with the remains of the airship to the ground.
    Brave move.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works
