Goodyear-Zeppelin ZRS-5 USS Macon
One of the two sister ship built during the 1930's and being the world largest of its kind among helium-filled airships (785 feet / 239 meters). Commissioned on 23 June 1933 and called to active duty in 1934, the USS Macon eventually crashed into the sea on 12 February 1935 in the Monterey Bay during a storm. Only two sailors were lost.
The lost of USS Macon is part of the movie The Go-Getter (1937).
