Description

Aviation book
Here for the first time, the author has detailed the complete saga of the United States Navy's nearly fifty years' involvement with airships, including the twenty - four - year period after the Hindenburg tragedy. It is the story of ships that were longer than a football field but, when properly balanced, could be moved by a man's finger. Sky Ships is based on research in primary sources including dozens of interviews with navy personnel and civilian participants. In addition the book has more than two hundred remarkable photographs, most of which have never before been published. In this book, the author has compiled an extraordinary story of a unique era in the history of manned flight.

William F. Althoff ( January 12th, 1945 ) is a geologist and historian of naval aviation and science in the Arctic. He has had a lifelong interest in lighter - than - air aeronautics, which began when his father took him as a child to visit the Naval Air Station at Lakehurst ( New Jersey, United States ). His publications include scientific papers, articles, and six books, including Arctic Mission : by airship & submarine to the Far North ( 1999 ), USS Los Angeles : The Navy's Venerable Airship and Aviation Technology ( 2002 ) and Forgotten Weapon : U.S. Navy airships and the U - Boat War ( 2009 ). He was Ramsey Fellow in Naval Aviation History at the National Air and Space Museum in 1999 - 2000 and then research associate in 2000 - 2002.
