Back of postcard reads: This souvenir post card of the rigid airship "Macon" comes to you from the annual exhibition of the Rubber City Stamp Club, Akron, Ohio. Reproduced from an original photograph furnished by The Goodyear Aerospace Corp. U.S.S. Macon, Goodyear built rigid airship for the the U.S. Navy and sister ship of the U.S.S. Akron, was launched and made its original flight in Akron, O. in April 21, 1933. Ultimately it was based at the U.S. Naval air station, Moffett Field, Calif. Returning from maneuvers with the U.S. Fleet, in the Pacific, on Feb. 12, 1935, Macon suffered damage, settled into the sea, off Point Sur, California and subsequently was rescued but two. This view shows the Macon in The Goodyear Airship Hanger, Akron, Ohio, which is the largest of its type in the world. (This card is third in a series)
