Goodyear Blimp To Fly High Above South Florida This Weekend

Goodyear says its "Wingfoot Two" Blimp will soar above hospitals from Boca Raton to West Palm Beach on Saturday, with the flight beginning at Noon over Boca Raton Regional, Delray Medical Center, Bethesda Hospital East, JFK Medical Center and finally St. Mary's Medical Center.

The flight is to honor health care workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Blimp will fly above Broward County on Friday.

All of this is weather permitting and residents are encouraged to maintain social distance and enjoy the blimp from the safety of their homes.

The Blimp then flies high above the Medalist Golf Club in Martin County Sunday, for a charity match that features Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Goodyear says the blimps have been mostly grounded since major sports went on hold in March.
