ELKHART — The Goodyear blimp made a pit stop at Elkhart Municipal Airport over the weekend, thrilling a small crowd allowed to have an up-close look.

The lighter-than-air ship stopped on its way from an air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, back to its home base in Akron, Ohio. Airport Director Andy Jones received the call and hoped it would be an opportunity for Elkhart residents to see the icon up close.
