There’ll be good reasons to look to the skies next month as the Goodyear Blimp makes a return to the UK to spend a few days floating around the southeast of England.

It’s a giant floating advert for something most of us don’t really care about, and yet, it’s the sort of advert that makes people smile and point at it in delight.

The schedule for the flights to take place, weather permitting is 11th to 15th May 2022.

The Goodyear Blimp is set to fly over London on 11th and 12th May, where you’ll be able to see it visiting the Shard, the Tower of London and lots more landmarks and locations. The Goodyear Blimp will then be flying over Brands Hatch on 14th and 15th May to catch all the action at the British Touring Car Championship. And you’ll also be able to spot the Goodyear Blimp in plenty more places across the south of the country as it flies over the UK.

The Goodyear Blimp is officially Zeppelin LZ N07-101, a 75-metre long semi-rigid airship, should you be using an online flight tracker (aircraft registration DLZFN) to see where it is or follow their Twitter account for updates.

Updated 16th April – more details announced about where the Blimp will be on each day it’s over the UK.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
