Title: Blimps maneuver over California, May, 1942

Description: An echelon of blimps maneuver in the skies over the U.S. Navy Balloon School at Moffett Field, California; blimps such as these maintained vigilant air reconnaissance along the U.S. coastlines during the war; the Navy's blimps were called "sub busters," had a cruising radius of 1,500 miles, and carried a crew of eight or more men, observers alternating every two hours to relax or sleep in bunks slung in the blimp's gondola; the blimps carried a few depth charges and machine guns, but their greatest asset was to identify lurking subs before calling depth charge strikes by nearby war vessels;
