Touching Down at Wingfoot Lake

leave a comment »


Wingfoot Two is the name given the latest blimp assigned to the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company basein Suffield Township southeast of Akron, Ohio.

In early November 2016, I made a visit to Wingfoot Lake State Park, which is across the water from the Goodyear base.

The lake was once a Goodyear retreat for employees and guests before being sold to the State of Ohio.

Wingfoot Two arrived that afternoon on a flight from Columbus, where it had helped cover an Ohio State University football game the night before.

Note the passing duck in the foreground, which is leaving a long wake behind as it paddles near the shore of the lake.
