V-R2 Dirigible...

Item # 547965

August 23, 1921

LEOMINSTER DAILY ENTERPRISE,  Leominster, Massachusetts, August 23, 1921.

* V-R2 Dirigible

The front page of this issue features an article entitled:  "Trial Trip of Big Dirigible V-R2 Commences Today", reading in part:  "Giant Balloon Purchased from Great Britain by United States Preparing for Flight Across Atlantic to America-Today's Flight Believed to Be Final Test-Will Try Out Gigantic Airship Over North Sea".

This complete 8 page issue is in relatively good condition for the period, although extremely fragile.  There are minor edge fractures which may be seen in the photos.  Browning can be found throughout, and a small piece measuring approximately 2x1 inches is missing from the bottom left corner of every page.
