Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wreck of the Shenandoah
Subject: RE: Lyr Req:/Song Origins---Wreck of the Shenandoah
My son is going there right now. The folks who keep the museum out of their own pocket in Ava got the school to change the shape of the airship logo they were using. They were using a figure that was obviously drawn from a blimp and not a Zeppelin, kinda' short and fat.
The Shenandoah was one of the most tubular in shape as had been the L49 where the design came from originally. Long and sleek, she was one of the prettiest airships ever. The logo now reflects the Zep shape better but I kinda' gather it wasn't something the school wanted to do. I could be wrong.
