  • Navy Ridged Airships

    This picture is of interest because of the navy's three Dirigibles(rigid airships).The navy had three of them in the thirities, but we lost all three to storms or accidents.

  • A failed technology?

    • 12/5/09

    They flew, thousands of miles, thousands of passengers, for decades. How is that a failure? The large ones only went away when the navy came out with sea going aircraft carriers, and the small dirigibles were in use all through WWII. Ships with sails and propeller planes aren't used much anymore but I don't think you'd call those failed technologies!

  • A RARE history on Failed Technology

    • Norman F Bohrer
    • 6/9/09

    Always overly dependent on the sanctity of progress and technology, the younger generations need to see this flick. Here is a true depiction of the promise of new technology and its demise. With all the promise and human efforts available at their time, the characters always -as human as today- believe and struggle in a concept to better their world. In the end, belief in self outlasts belief in the promise of science. Bring it back for all to see!

  • THE "DIRIGIBLE" IS HERE TO STAY!!"

    One of the best movies of it's genre!!(along with 1945's ; "THIS MAN'S NAVY) You can probably get a copy from some one at the "LIGHTER THAN AIR SOCIETY" (in Akron, OH.) or "THE NAVAL AIRSHIP ASSOC." (N.A.A.)What a great era in this nation's history!! The story of the AIRSHIP personafies the pioneerining and adventuresness of mankind AT IT'S BEST!!!!

  • Bring DIRIGIBLE out in DVD

    I saw your broadcast if the 1931 Frank Capra film "DIRIGIBLE" this morning on TCM. I have been seeking this film for over 30 years. It is a masterpiece of writing, cinematography, and special effects that puts to shame our current generation computer-generated adventure films. It shows REAL FOOTAGE of the Navy's rigid airship era without excessive use of toylike models. The story of internal Navy rivalry between airplanes and airships is very appropo today, as much as it was in 1931. It is as much a vintage aviation thriller as TEST PILOT and HELLDIVERS, which are both on the video market now. And it features Fay Wray two years before she was swept off her feet by King Kong!
