Savannah James christens new Goodyear blimp

Blimp christening ceremony

The newest addition to Goodyear's iconic Summit County-based blimp fleet, is now in service.

The new blimp named "Wingfoot Two" was christened today at the Wingfoot Lake hangar in Mogadore.

Big cruise ships get royalty to christen their crafts, so Goodyear needed some local royalty to do the honors. 

Akron's Savannah James was the perfect choice.  In fact, her husband, "The King" LeBron James, was also on hand for the occasion.

Savannah took a few moments to talk with WKYC Channel 3's Carl Bachtel about the importance of the Goodyear blimps to Akron, and how much fun it would be if the Indians could join their minor-league affiliate Akron RubberDucks as champions.
