Smithsonian’s Around the Mall blog recently dug up an awesome FAO Schwarz catalogue from 1911, found over at the Internet Archive. It’s filled with some pretty fantastic toys, including airship-themed board games, Kodak cameras, and carriages led by sheep. But these gifts didn’t come cheap.
It’s been nearly a century since airships floated by the Empire State Building. But now that the aluminium airship of the future is here and almost ready to carry passengers, it’s high time that we took a look back to those few decades when majestic zeppelins seemed like the future of travel.
Zeppelins are actually quite an impressive species of aeronautical engineering — you know, when they aren’t on fire. That’s especially true considering the level of technological prowess in the 1920′s. Our friends at Oobject have assembled 12 shots of these magnificent air-borne cruisers before they ever lifted off.
The next time you’re at a music festival and see a giant rainbow trout swishing around in the sky, there’s just a chance you might not be intoxicated. It might be scientists testing an airship that moves like a fish.
Costing $US8 million, the Bullet 580 is the world’s largest blimp, measuring 71m long and 6m in diameter. Able to be flown remotely or with a crew, you could rent it – for over $US300,000 a month.
