“No pilgrims on this Mayflower”


November 5, 1976: Fishermen may have the reputation of being full of hot air, but these anglers met their match Thursday when the Mayflower, the Goodyear blimp, appeared over the Juno Beach Fishing Pier. The durable helium-filled air ship is on its way to Jacksonville for Saturday’s annual Florida-Georgia football game, according to a Goodyear official in Miami.

  1. We have a Goodyear Blimp that flies over PSL ever now and again. I remember it as a kid and my kids will remember it. Good post!
