Umberto Nobile walking through the keel of the Italia Airship. Airship Italia was a semi-rigid airship used by Italian engineer Umberto Nobile in his second series of flights around the North Pole. It crashed in 1928, with one confirmed fatality from the crash, one fatality from exposure while awaiting rescue, and the disappearance (and presumed death) of six crew members who were trapped in the still-airborne envelope. www.airshipcenter.com

The interior of the Hindenburg’s lower tail fin. The starboard access hatch can be seen at lower right, and the control area for the aft landing wheel can be seen between the pair of V-shaped girder arrangements at lower center. Further forward from this position, a trio of portholes in the starboard side of the fin mark the location of the emergency helm control stand. The man in the photo is standing at roughly the same spot as the Chief Engineer’s landing station.
