Hello all, I thought some of you might appreciate seeing some great pictures of US Navy airships from the 1920s. My mother in law recently gave me an album full of some anonymous family's snapshots, from somewhere in the New York or New Jersey area, that she found at a flea market a number of years back: Some interesting stuff, but the real gems were in the back. Large format (5" X 8 1/2") images of the doomed ZR-1 airship the USS Shenandoah, which was destroyed in an Ohio storm in 1925, killing more than a dozen crew members. Also some nice pictures of the USS Los Angeles the ZR-3 and some smaller airships, like the J-1, which was the Navy's only operating blimp for a time in the early 20s (according to Wikipedia) in an unidentified hangar. Seeing this gigantic beauties gives me a thrill. It's hard to imagine a time when aircraft so awe-inspiring were so commonplace. Hope you enjoy.
