Goodyear Blimp Crashes


Yesterday, one of Goodyear's gigantic, flying billboards crashed into an industrial park in Florida during a thunderstorm. No one was injured but that's not going to be an easy ad medium to replace.

At the risk of being overly pedantic, kb, the real lesson from the Hindenberg is "Good thing they stopped making these things out of ridiculously flammable cloth!"

(Very little of that fire was fueled by the hydrogen, and hydrogen also escapes up into the sky very quickly. But hydrogen is also what people remember....)

In any case, it's quite a shame to lose this one.
