A community celebration for the 10th anniversary of the “Spirit of Innovation” blimp now housed at Carson’s Goodyear base will take place Tuesday [June 21].
The Carson blimp is the nation’s last GZ-20-model in operation because Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is replacing its three blimps with modern Zeppelin NTs that are bigger, faster and more modern. Carson expects to get the new model late next year.
Tuesday’s event, taking place from 1-7:30 p.m., will feature public tours around the blimp, free tire checks and other promotions.
Blimp fans can register to attend the event at www.goodyearblimpSOIDay.eventbrite.com. The base is at 19200 S. Main St., Gardena, CA 90248.
