Rigid Airships 1893-1940

Book - 1992
Rate this:
Another valuable addition to the lighter-than-air literature from Smithsonian Institution Press (this co-published with Putnam Aeronautical Books, UK). Brooks describes the technical details of all 50 dirigible types and mentions variations in the 163 individual ships completed, together with many that never flew. Great photos, flight maps--including the Hindenburg's final landing approach to Lakehurst. Appendices cover control surfaces of early Zeppelins, commercial operations and schedules, operating statistics and characteristics, a key to designations (complicated by WWI disinformation), projects. A fine reference and a handsome book. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
