      ZEPPLINS!!! (and other airships)

      "Clement-Bayard dirigible in shed in France circa 1908."

      pedal powered! 1908


      "Walter Wellman's hydrogen dirigible America just before being abandoned by its crew near Bermuda, 1,370 miles into an attempt to cross the Atlantic from New Jersey. Its engines having failed, the America drifted out of sight, never to be seen again."

      "A small powered blimp used in 1912 to demonstrate remote control of aircraft by wireless telegraphy. ("Professor Anthony has exhibited a method of airship control of his own by wireless. He and Leo Stephens recently gave an exhibition of starting, controlling, turning and stopping an airship by wireless which was quite a long distance from the station which controlled its action.")"

      "Vicinity of Washington, D.C. Army balloon circa 1918-1921."

      "The Navy airship ZR-1 (USS Shenandoah) under construction in 1922-23 at Lakehurst Naval Air Station, New Jersey. The 680-foot, 36-ton zeppelin, the first rigid airship to use helium rather than hydrogen, broke up in a storm over Ohio in 1925 with a loss of 14 lives."

      ^ZR-1 again

      ^ZR-1 again again

      ^ZR-1 again again again

      "Graf Zeppelin over the Tower of David, Jerusalem. April 11, 1931"

      "German zeppelin LZ3 entering its shed on the Bodensee. 1908"

      Is the driver's chair busted too? Note the slant in the top bar. Not sure if that's part of design.

      Most excellent thread.

      These come from a French website, so I'm using GOOGLE to translate. Unfortunately these are only offered in 500x350 size, or stupid ginormo 3500x..... I think thats a little too large to post. If anyone can think of some keywords to search, let me know... there are 13,000 images in the database

      keyword search: americaine

      "In the ruins before the Office of German investment, a group of soldiers of the U.S. infantry is grouped around HC Medley playing the accordion"

      "German prisoners carrying their dead comrades in the cemetery of Bréhal under the supervision of American soldiers."

      "French pose flowers on the bodies of American soldiers."

      "A chaplain gave the American extreme unction to paratroopers killed in the area of Carentan. In the background, we see soldiers in a row and keep you in front of large graves."

      "2 U.S. soldiers to fire cannon"

      "American aviation unit at a ceremony in Normandy"

      "U.S. draws a bulldozer loaded in the ruins of Carentan"
