Caption: USS Macon. Artwork of a Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk fighter aircraft docking (arrows) with the USS Macon, an airship operated by the US Navy. The Sparrowhawk was designed to hook onto a docking mechanism that would then raise it into the airship. The same mechanism could be used for a mid-air launch. The USS Macon was 239 metres long, and was a rigid airship built in the USA by the Goodyear-Zeppelin Corporation. The gas used to provide lift was helium. There were eight engines, each driving a propeller on the side (four seen here). The USS Macon was launched on 21 April 1933, crashing on 12 February 1935.
