An airship burst into flames and fell out of the sky in Germany on Sunday evening, killing the pilot, but three passengers managed to leap to safety and were unhurt. The blimp, part of an advertising campaign for the Goodyear tire company, was about to land at an airfield in Reichelsheim in western Germany when fire broke out in both engines, media reports said.
