  • Short Summary

    Shots of the Akron - an American airship - no great shots and very short.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. World's Biggest Airship. The 'Akron' - makes first flight after repairs to damaged fin and has long battle with storms & gales."

    United States of America.

    L/S of American airship Akron floating above airfield.

    Closer shot of two biplanes flying under the airship.

    Sound Track Missing

    NB - not a very good story about the Akron - very short. There is a soundtrack in the can marked up as Akron and it seems to relate to this item but it is much longer. Perhaps this item was cut up to provide shots of the airship for later pieces.
