CHEERS,

  1. My favorite American rigid airship. One of the most majestic dirigibles ever built. That is why I modeled it in 2009.

    In my research of this airship, recently, I found out that Zachary Lansdowne, the commander of this ship both share the same birthday as I, December 1st, just different years. He was born in 1888. That made him only 36 years old when he was killed in the storm when the ship broke apart. I'm starting to think that is why I have such an affinity for this ship, we were both born on the same date.

    1. Also one of my favorite airships; mainly because it's one of the few great airships to have a direct connection to my home state (the Shenandoah as you likely know crashed near Ava, Ohio.)

    1. Not a problem. I had intended to ask you for the link for when I did an "Airship of the Month" on the Shenandoah in August.

  3. One minor correction I need you to make, Hendrick. I'm doing the R-34. You have the link post that you did as me doing the much bigger and luxurious R-36. Thought I'd bring that to your attention.---Jim.
