The Goodyear blimp Stars & Stripes navigates through a severe thunderstorm 16 June, 2005, shortly before crash-landing on a Coral Springs, Fla. storage building facility. The blimp’s two pilots walked away from the crash unharmed and no injuries were reported on the ground. The blimp struck a concrete utility pole during its descent, causing about 1,400 homes in the area to lose electricity. Neither pilot has commented on the cause of the crash, and it isn’t clear if the rain and lighting caused the blimp to crash or if the pilots deliberately brought the blimp to the ground.
