Goodyear Blimp Accident ?

I just found this video of the Goodyear Blimp on YouTube.

The info to the video states that the video is from 5/27/1995 in Carson,California so it's a few years ago but I couldn't find anything about a Goodyear Blimp Accident on the web at that time. But maybe I haven't searched enough.

Yes this is the eagle. Back in 1995. And no this wasn't the culmination of the RC plane hit. They didn't lose the airship to that. And the incident didnt happen on the mooring mast. There was a wind shift as they were changing pax. They were changing pilots, my dad was getting out and the other one was getttin in and the crew lost the ship and it went accross the base into the victoria golf course. Back then they didnt start the number 2 engine before they changed pilots, now they do because he couldnt get it started as the ship when accross the field. Anyways, when it ended up in the golf course the airship hit a tree and tore a hole in the side. the left engine was chewing up a golf cart so they shut it down got the right one started and got the ship really light and flew it around while the crew went and got the mooring mast up. they finally got it on the mast and as described by my dad he heard a huge unzipping sound (the envelope ripping), the fins just fluttered to the ground. and that was the end of N10A the eagle. That summer they went back to akron and build the other Eagle N2A.

wrong! it happened over night. the guy on watch left the ship to go to a party. while he was gone there was no one to monitor the pressure inside the envelope and eventually the tail hit the ground and the rest is history

If you ever observe the history of airships, you will find plenty of accidents due to several reasons. In the 90s, a lot of accidents of airships took place due to which governments bear a lot of loss in monetary terms as well as the in the form of deaths of passengers and crew members. In this article, I have briefly discussed some major accidents of airships or blimps after the World War,If you ever observe the history of airships, you will find plenty of accidents due to several reasons. In the 90s, a lot of accidents of airships took place due to which governments bear a lot of loss in monetary terms as well as the in the form of deaths of passengers and crew members.An airship (also known as a dirigible) is a "lighter air aircraft" that can be steered and propelled through the air using rudders and propellers or other plunge. Unlike other aerodynamic aircraft such as fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, which produce lift by moving a wing, aerostatic aircraft, such as airships and hot air balloons, stay aloft by filling a large cavity. The airship is one of the oldest vehicles for airborne operations.accident compensation claims.Thanks a lot for sharing this.
