how it was flown?
I assumed you would know since it's your username?
I don't know a ton about it though.
true.. i know abit about it, but need to know more
You mean like this:
It's essentially a big balloon filled with lighther than air gasses.
A cab or "gondola" hangs beneath the balloon.
The cab has propellers attached to it, sort of like a prop-driven airplane.
The propeller provides thrust, and direction is controlled by rudders, one set for up-down and another for left-right.
excalty like that
It was filled with explosive helium, crashed into something, something sparked, and it went up like a beautiful exploding blimp. And I'm pretty sure the whole thing was gone in less than five mins.
yup true.. think it was sumthing like 35 seconds
I don't know about the exact time, but I know it was quick. And beautiful. And black and white.
init.. it was quite amazing how it all happened
It crashed in New Jersey in May 1937. Nearly fourty people died in the explosion.
