Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s new blimp, "The Spirit of America," will take to the skies next week.

Goodyear will officially launch the aircraft on Thursday, Sept. 5, after a morning program at its blimp hangar near Akron, Ohio.

The parents of a New York City policeman killed in last September's terrorist attack will christen the blimp, say Goodyear officials.
