Goodyear Places Orders For Three Zeppelin NTs
Goodyear has placed an order for three Zeppelin NT airships in a deal worth €14.5 million ($21 million) per unit. The airships will replace three blimps over the course of the next six years. They will be based in Ohio, Florida and California and used for advertising purposes. The order is the biggest ever for the Friedrichshafen, Germany-based company, which restarted building airships in 1997. Major components will be built in Friedrichshafen, but will be shipped to Akron, Ohio, for final assembly.
