Official photograph, U. S.Navy A TRAINING PLANE HOOKS ON TO THE "AKRON" HIGH OVER BAY HEAD, NEW JERSEY In her airplane compartment this airship had room for five fighting planes, which were hoisted through aT-shaped hatch beneath and hung uplike hats on a rack inside. The engines of the Akron were within the envelope, as on a surface ship, and drove the outside propellers. The radiators for an apparatus to condense moisture from the exhaust may be seen above the propellers. This photograph was taken near where the airship went down, April 4,1933.
