ABSTRACT
The article presents details of recent accidents and incidents are presented to help avert repetition. A Goodyear blimp, the Spirit of America, came loose from its moorings and escaped from its ground crew, sailed into a parked truck and dove into a fertilizer pile next to a plant nursery in Carson, California. A cameraman inside the blimp suffered a knee injury. The accident reportedly caused a large tear in the front of the blimp and knocked out its gondola's front window. The other aircraft Beech 1900C was damaged when it collided with a tree during an instrument approach to the Juneau Airport in Alaska, where it safely landed. No injuries were reported.
