Biographical / Historical
Biographical / Historical
The Ray Airship was designed by Ralph W. Yelli, a civil engineer from Los Angeles, California. Yelli worked on his design during the late 1920s and early 1930s, but it appears that the airship never progressed past the model/concept design. The airship was designed to transport 100 passengers between Los Angeles and New York.
