Subject: RE: BS: Goodbye, Goodyear Blimp-Hello, Zeppelin
Interesting Amos......The Airship group was at one time a decent sized branch of the service. They had days of "shows" where balloons, blimps, and rigids flew en masse above an airfield.
There is a move named "Dirigible" that sort of starred the Los Angeles. Here's a you tube clip and worth watching for the first few minutes. It ain't hard to pick out the monstrous and yet sleek Los Angeles flying amongst the blimps which are of similar size to the current Goodyear blimps.
The Los Angeles in the movies!
