Dirigible USS Akron crashes in 1933...



Item # 672934

April 04, 1933

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, April 4, 1933 

* Crash of the USS Akron (ZRS-4)

The front page has a nice banner headline announcing: "AIRSHIP AKRON LOST; 73 DIE?" with subheads. A few related photos are on the back page. An early first report as the fate of the airship and it's passengers were still unknown at the time of publication. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this world famous newspaper.
Complete with all 30 pages, rag edition in very nice condition. A few small binding holes along the spine.
