Riding High in the Goodyear Blimp

Hosted by

In a region synonymous with the history of flight, Southern California's best-known aerial vehicle doesn't have wings, it has fins. How does this best known and most romantic of aircraft really work? Who are the people who keep it flying? KCRW's Saul Gonzalez took a long look at the Goodyear Blimp at the Carson Air Field.
