Goodyear Blimp Flies Above Oak Hill
Written by Site Hub on May 20, 2023
Whether or not you are a fan of golf, you could catch one cool thing about the PGA! The Goodyear blimp, which is one of 25 blimps in the world, has been hovering in the sky above Oak Hill Country Club all this week.
The pilot of the blimp says it gives the best view in town. Chief pilot William Bayliss stated: “We can hover for just hours and hours. We’re going up there for about six hours today, hovering for the most part to get the right angle on the ball down the fairway, sun angle, all that good stuff. It’s so much better than airplanes and helicopters for that purpose. We’re going to have enough fuel on board for this flight for about 22 hours of flying time. Helicopters, yeah, they can hover as well, but they’ll run out of gas after about two hours — whereas helium does the heavy lifting for us, so there’s no better platform for aerial videography and photography.”
