AirBalloon the USS Akron 1930's


 The USS Akron over San Francisco, California  in the early 1930's. The Akron carried 4 Curtis F9C-2 Sparrowhawk aircraft inside, to be  launched or retrieved by means of a trapeze.  Look closely and you can see a Sparrowhawk approaching the trapeze. Below the lower fin is another Sparrowhawk waiting to hook on to the trapeze.
