One hundred and twenty years before the Wright brother’s historic 1903 flight mankind had already discovered a way to ascend into the atmosphere using lifting gases.  Airplane development through the early 1930s produced remarkable aircraft with limited payload, range and comfort. But luxurious long distance and transatlantic air travel was still possible during this period by way of the airship. These giant airships were also used in warfare, polar exploration and weekly scheduled air service. This presentation will outline the story of these giant airships. They occupied a fascinating but short lived side branch in the evolutionary tree of aviation.
