Blimp Name: SPIRIT OF SAFETY 1.
A Goodyear-branded A60 airship


Last night (12 June 2011) at 8.30 p.m. local time, Goodyear airship Spirit of Safety I G-TLEL crashed at Reichelsheim, Hesse, Germany. While in flight, the airship caught fire. Three passengers managed to escape during the emergency landing, the pilot died in the burning airship. It was a type A-60 blimp of the American Blimp Corporation carrying a Goodyear advertising logo, the crashed airship was not a zeppelin NT as reported previously.

12th June 2325 CET

An airship operated by Lightship Europe Limited caught fire at Reichelsheim Airfield in Germany this evening.

One member of the flight crew suffered fatal injuries. There were no injuries to passengers or ground crew.

The Airship is one of two leased by Goodyear from Lightship Europe Limited for marketing purposes in Europe. The second airship has been withdrawn from service until further notice.

First and foremost, our thoughts are with the family and friends of the crew member, and also with our colleagues and the passengers involved with the airship tour in Germany.

As is customary in incidents involving aircraft, the aviation and local authorities have initiated an investigation and it would be premature for Goodyear or Lightship Europe Limited to speculate on causes and findings at this time.
