The Goodyear Blimp will be flying over South Florida this week — and no, it’s not just for a big sporting event.
Goodyear says its Wingfoot Two blimp will be soaring above healthcare systems in the South Florida area on Friday and Saturday to honor those battling the coronavirus pandemic on the front line.
Saturday is also when South Florida will enjoy a second military flyover in a matter of weeks.
After visiting the hospitals, the Goodyear Blimp will be over Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound on Sunday when Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning play a golf match to raise millions for COVID-19 relief.
The Goodyear Blimp’s appearance is weather permitting, with a schedule as follows:
