…it’s the Goodyear Blimp flying over the Hub City!
The Goodyear Blimp was spotted flying into Lubbock from the northwest around 2:30pm Friday afternoon. It’s here as a part of McWhorter’s Tires 75th Anniversary and will make a fly by during the Texas Tech homecoming game against Iowa State on Saturday.
The blimp will also make a dream come true for a 7 year old Lubbock Cooper Central Elementary School student. Andrew Ferris has been interested in blimps for over a year.
Andrew wrote to Goodyear (the blimp department) to let them know that one day he would love to visit one of their blimps.
And now, Andrew’s dream comes true, as he will get a RIDE in the Goodyear Blimp!
A Lubbock boy who loves blimps will have his high-flying dream come true on Saturday thanks to McWhorters Truck Center and the Goodyear Blimp

The Goodyear blimp flew over our school as the children played outside. They were so excited to see such a sight!
