(KTVI)– Goodyear showed off its newest blimp Friday.

The new and faster blimp is 246 feet a little longer than its predecessor.

Now, it can hold up to 12 people instead of seven.

The blimp is also stepping into the new millennium with computers inside, retiring the 80-year-old fly-by-wire system.

Now it just needs a new name and it’s up to you to decide.

The person who picks the winning name will get the blimp for a day.

Runners up will roll out with tires.
