Thx Willy for the information

Pilot killed after helping three passengers to make incredible escape as Goodyear blimp plunges to the ground in flames

A Goodyear blimp burst into flames and plunged to earth in a weekend crash in Germany. The pilot was killed but three passengers managed to jump to safety when the airship caught fire as it was coming in to land at the Reichelsheim aerodrome near Friedberg.

The pilot managed to get near enough the ground for passengers to escape before climbing back up

One of the Good Year Blimp (G-TLEL) is visiting Belgium. After a stop in Deurne, the dirigible was in Grimbergen. Unfortunetly the communication about this visit was very bad and not so much peoples were aware.
