Sharon Chapman boards blimp with help from friends.

BURLINGTON, N.C. – A woman’s dying wish to take a ride in a blimp came true Saturday in Burlington.

Sharon Chapman had flown a single engine sea plane and a glider and had ridden in a hot air balloon, but she had never been in a blimp before.

Chapman told her social worker at Hospice & Palliative Care Center that a blimp ride was on her bucket list.

The care center teamed up with Wells Fargo and Met Life to make Chapman’s wish come true on Saturday.

Chapman is said to have been extremely excited about the blimp ride.
