USS Shenandoah Print

It may not look like much at at 540 pixels wide, but this is our latest thing. Christened on October 10th, 1923, the USS Shenandoah was one of the US Navy's first rigid airships. On September 3, 1925, less than two years into her service, she was caught in a violent thunderstorm over Ohio. The 680-foot, 37-ton ship was literally torn to pieces, and fourteen crewmen, including her captain, lost their lives.
