The finalist names were chosen based on criteria, including how the name reflects the history of airships, the majesty of lighter-than-air flight and Goodyear’s track record of delivering superior performance and innovation.

The new blimp, which took its first test flight one month ago, is an all-new version of the tire company’s world-famous icon.
