Naval Airships




Today's picture is from 1943 and shows a US Navy dirigible base on the east coast. Many do not realize that these airships were used in World War II for surveillance. These vessels had many unique capabilities, and I find it unfortunate that the technology was all but abandoned after the second world war.
