Very good PBS NOVA documentary on Airship use during World War I

No problem:

Since we are planning to go on the SteamPunk Cruise leaving from Newark in February this video reminded me to look into visiting Lakehurst while we are there.  I saw the hangars at a distance (you could see them at a DISTANCE) when I was a teenager stationed nearby.  We plan to fly in a couple days early since flights out of Alaska can be a little tricky at this time of year.

Good Captain...  Sir, I accidentally deleted your most recent video post to NACA of the 'Secret History of Airships"... I apologize profusely... I was in process of making comment of how splendid a video it was. I watched it several days ago when it was featured on the front page of the Empire. Could I trouble you to re-post it here... You have done great work in keeping active this corner of the Empire where I have been derelict.


I thank you Sir..

I just stumbled across this 1898 picture of a hotair balloon over Juneau.
