Manufacturer Description

Originally published by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. as a promotional, The Story of the Airship chronicles the history and development of these great "silver cruisers of the sky." Filled with photos and authoritative text, the book springs from an era when dirigibles, balloons andblimps competed against airplanes for public attention. Sadly, incidents such as those that befell the USS Macon, USS Akron and Hindenburg caused the public to lose faith in these craft. Published prior to these terrible tragedies, this book chronicles some of the stunning achievements made in the 10s, 20's and 30s. It can be seen as a testament to a golden era, when the sky was full of promise, and serene voyages of wonder were routinely made in these amazing aircraft.
