Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
In 1928 the Goodyear-Zeppelin Corporation signed contracts with the Bureau of Aeronautics to build two large fleet-type rigid airships designed expressly for strategic scouting work with US Fleet. These sister ships carried airplanes for fighter protection and for scouting. The first of the two was the USS Akron. NAS Lakehurst was homeport for the Akron between October 1931, when she was delivered to the station, and April 1933 when the Akron was lost off Barnegat Light with a heavy loss of life.
