The airship in the picture is the U.S.S. Akron (ZRS-4), the U.S. Navy's flying aircraft carrier. Just four months after this picture was taken, Akron crashed off the coast of New Jersey during a storm killing 73 crewmen. Her sister ship Macon, commissioned June of that year met the same fate two years later but only 2 crewmen died.
