      just seeing if linking from google's life magazine archives works...

      if it works, that is a b-17 and the smoke is coming from the focke-wulf factory it just bombed.

      "The image was taken in 1966 by Lunar Orbiter 1 and heralded by then-journalists as the Image of the Century. It was taken about two years before the Apollo 8 crew snapped its more famous color cousin. Recently, modern technology has allowed the recovery of higher resolution images from old data sources such as Lunar Orbiter tapes than ever before."

      I recommend anyone doing the Sears Tower/Hancock Building tour, to do one on clear day and the other at night ...I did Hancock at night and it was intense!

      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"
