    Yeah I thought it was unusal also, because of the date. I would of thought blimps would have pretty much a thing of the past around 1944. At least according to the article.

    Glad I could be helpful. Here's a side note...When I was stationed at NATC Pax River MD. in the mid 70's I worked with a first class PO who said he had been in the last two airship squadrons ZP-1 and ZP-2. He was in the decommissioning detail for both. He had a few funny stories too.. like the time he fell asleep on "ballast watch" and awoke to find the airship standing on its nose atop the mooring mast. :oops:
