Caption: Rescue of Nobile's polar expedition. Rescuers at the camp of survivors of the Nobile expedition to the Arctic. Italian engineer and explorer Umberto Nobile had led a crew of sixteen on board the airship 'Italia'. They flew over the North Pole, but while still in the Arctic crashed on 25 May 1928. One person died in the crash and another died attempting to trek to safety. Six were lost with the remains of the airship which rose back into the air. An international rescue effort was launched by sea and air, but several rescuers, including Roald Amundsen, died in the attempt. It took until 15 July before the eight survivors were rescued.
