    This DVD is a collection of astounding footage of the History of the Zeppelins. To Blimps and Airships that are "lighter than air", to the Hindenburg.  At the beginning of the 1900's. airships were beginning to come into there own.  Some what invented by the Germans,  the Airship was used to travel around the world faster than Ocean Liners.  These films have all the Major Zeppelins, Dirigibles and blimps throughout history.  There is amazing footage from the the Graf Zeppelin, to the Roma, the R33, Shenandoah, Los Angeles, Akron, Macon and of course the Hindenburg, which brought the end of the Dirigible era as it was known at the time.  The Navy used the Blimp to help fight the war against the U-Boats in the Atlantic war.  If you are fascinated with a bygone age of Airships.. I think you will enjoy this DVD.

    1st Film: "The History of the Airship".  This film tells the history, in film, of the rise and the fall of the Zeppelins, Dirigibles, and the airships from 1900 to 1937.  This is an absolutely amazing footage with narration of these magnificent airships and each of there histories.  Also included is a 1928 footage of the "Graf Zeppelin" flying around the east coast of America, Lakehurst, Delaware, etc.  Very rare footage and stunning to see. Runtime 9:52 Min's

    2nd  Film: "The Hindenburg".  This film is about the Nazi Airship, The Hindenburg.  She was one of the largest and one of the most prestigious airship of the sky.  She could make the run across the Atlantic in 3 days in complete luxury and was much faster than any ship.  This footage has her flying around New York,  Boarding and unloading, view inside, and of course, 3 versions of her bursting in flames at Lakehurst, which ended Airship travel as the world knew it than.  The different versions are all fascinating and very historical to see. Runtime 16:15 Min's

    3rd Film: "USS Akron and Macon". Here is a collection of Film on the USS Akron and the Macon.  2 of our largest airships ever built in the US.  Both were beautiful ships and had small airplanes the were stored inside the airship.  The planes could be launched and retrieved by a trap ease device.  Both Airships meet there doom at sea and the navy never again built ridged airships again.  Mostly Film footage with narration but we added some historical photos too.  Great stuff. Runtime 23:46 Min's

    4th Film: "USS Shenandoah and USS Los Angeles". This is a collection of film and photos of both of these airships.  The Shenandoah was lost to a storm on land and the Los Angeles was the the most successful airship of the navy.  The Los Angeles set the stage with her perfect safety record for the larger Akron and Macon Airship. Runtime  4:40 Min's. B/W

    5th Film: "US Navy Blimps".   Here is a collection of film on the US Navy Blimps and there uses.  Mostly for U-Boat hunting during WW2 in the Atlantic, Great footage of launching, building the blimp, flying and hunting U-boats.  The Blimps sure seem safer.  Runtime 9:07 Min's

    6th Film: "Airship Newsreels".  This is a collection of the use of Balloons, from training balloons, the Japanese fire bombs sent to the US during WW2, to High altitude tests, to a Old fashion cartoon called "Love in a Airship"  Fun to see. Runtime 18:42 Min's

    7th Film; "Call to the Air".  This is an amazing film and piece of history by the Army Air corp in there beginning.  Around 1920s to early 30's,  This film shows the army training cadets to fly balloons to airships from California to New Jersey.  Amazing Aerial footage as the airships fly over cities and harbors.  In one scene,  they fly over US Navy fleet of 4 Piper Destroyers at anchor.  This film is silent so we added a PD Version of Peer Gynt to it.  It is mesmerizing to watch the past like this.  Anyway,  Runtime 14:05 Min's
