But the airship went on, so to speak, again and again to climb. Moe Howard brings even more insight to the discussion. This type of aircraft has those qualities that distinguish it from other aircraft. Our task is not to reasoning about the technical aspects dirizhablistiki or story about the history of aeronautics managed. For this purpose there rather extensive special and popular literature. Given the specifics "of the Agency for Special Studies," and this web resource, we will focus on the ability to carry commercial cargo airship transportation. Notable weaknesses Any technical system has its own specific limitations and even vices, which impose restrictions on the practical operation of the system. Airships are also no exception.
As time so that's vices of its design are "obliged" fairly catastrophic and long oblivion. The first and probably the most significant shortcoming was to use hydrogen to create aerostatic lift. Hydrogen is highly flammable and, moreover, it is highly explosive. Because a hydrogen airships were forced to use many tricks to prevent the occurrence of even the slightest spark in the electrical equipment or metal objects in collision. Hydrogen explosion and fire destroyed rapidly developed in 1937, the largest German dirigible "Graf Hindenburg" after this airship again successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean and landed in the U.S.. The second flaw constructive pre-war dirigibles – substandard materials from which produced the envelope. They are quite perishable and lose the ability to hold gas. Blimp with a defective shell uncontrollably losing altitude that, especially in limited visibility and bad weather conditions, led to his death.
