Welcome to Blimp!


Welcome to the official website for the documentary BLIMP! Sports, Broadcasting and the Goodyear Airship, which premieres in 2017.

Sports and blimps—what a combination! Add broadcasting into the mix and you have an even bigger, better story.

That’s what this new documentary is all about—how the Goodyear airship went from the brink of extinction to the biggest thing in sports broadcasting.

It’s a story of the blimp, sports and broadcasting, of course; but it’s also about technology, competition and history.

This documentary was made possible by a grant from Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment of the Humanities.
