Spirit of Goodyear blimp

Five lucky attendees at EAA AirVenture 2012 will win the ride of a lifetime in the Spirit of Goodyear blimp in the "I Wanna Blimp Ride" Sweepstakes. The five sweepstakes winners will take to the skies over the AirVenture grounds and northeast Wisconsin for a one-hour "low and slow" flight aboard the blimp beginning at 5:15 p.m. on Friday July 27, conditions permitting.

Entries will be accepted beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, July 23, through 5 p.m. Thursday, July 26, at the Goodyear Aviation booth B2131 on the AirVenture grounds. Sweepstakes winners will be notified via telephone on the evening of Thursday, July 26.

"We are happy that the world-famous Goodyear Blimp will again be part of the festivities at Oshkosh!" said Eric Varndell, global marketing manager for Goodyear Aviation tires. "It's a dream of many pilots and aviation enthusiasts to have this unique aviation experience, and we are excited to once again provide the opportunity to fly 'low and slow' in the Goodyear blimp for a few lucky AirVenture attendees."

The Spirit of Goodyear arrives Wednesday, July 25 (weather permitting) and will fly regularly during the following two days before departing on Saturday, July 28. When not flying, it will be moored near the EAA AirVenture Museum's Pioneer Airport for up-close viewing, giving visitors a rare view of an aircraft that is commonly seen only from afar.
