Early Airships

It’s Not What You Think!

Saturday, November 18

11 am – 12:00 pm

Aviation historian Roy Mize has a passion about forgotten stories of the early days of flying.  On Saturday, November 18, he will tell us about one of them.

Early California Airships.  It’s Not What You Think!

Roy will present the stories of nine early pioneers.  Three built and successfully flew their craft.  One made an ascension and then his airship became the world’s first dirigible disaster.   Two built their airships but they never rose from the ground.  One started to rise, groaned, and then settled back on the ground, and one had a dream that bordered on fantasy.  That makes eight airship stories.  Come listen and find out about the ninth.

Event included with museum admission.
