46. The USS Akron Airship Ghost

Boy. Dirigibles. Was there ever so much promise that was met with such constant disaster? Those beautiful, transportational gasbags really led troubled lives, didn’t they? And because they couldn’t just keep it together for a few more decades, we now have Spirit Airlines. Thanks a lot, tragedy.

This is the story of the USS Akron airship ghost. Come for the ghost, stay for the Roarin’ Depression, the Joad family jokes, the Hindenburg Hiccup, trapeze eroticism, delicious humanity, and the most effective 75-person drowning machine.
