Horrific Blimp Crash

  • Print

 

   A tragic story out of Germany.  A Goodyear Blimp crashed.  The blimp was airborne with four journalists when a fire broke out.  He got the blimp low enough to the ground that the journalists could jump to safety.  The pilot then tried to land safely.  He took the blimp back up before it erupted in a fireball reminiscent of the Hindenburg disaster.  The pilot died.  The journalists were all ok.

 

   Here are the tragic pictures.
