Interesting Althof source[edit]

I added the Althof source to cite the atlantic delivery flight, but I just read page 35 and it has details on the radio and electrical equipment on board, call sign NERM, page 40 has a detailed log, and so on, if anyone cares to expand the article:

Questionable conclusion[edit]

"The Los Angeles took part in Fleet Problems XII (1931) and XIII (1932), although as was the case with all U.S. Navy rigid airships, demonstrated no particular benefit to the fleet." This is complete bullcrap. At the very least, AKRON and MACON demonstrated the capability of visually sweeping more square miles per day (by employing airplanes carried on board), on a longer path, than any surface vessel or airplane.

Incorrect photograph[edit]

The photograph in the article that supposedly shows the ZR-3 over Berlin is actually the Graf Zeppelin. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.61.34.18 (talk) 00:03, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
