A Goodyear blimp lands at St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport to pick up passengers for a ride Tuesday. Thirty local Goodyear stores had a contest in which winners got to ride on the blimp while it was in town. The airship is on an 18-day tour that included the NCAA men's Final Four in New Orleans. It will leave today for Lakeland and then on to its home port, Pompano Beach.
