The Macon







   This is a (little clumsy) drawing I made a long time ago. The Macon was one of two sister rigid airships (the other one was the Akron) built by a joint German-American corporation, as it was agreed in the post-WWI peace treaties. The original drawing is quite large and detailed. I hope you'll be able to see all the details; especially the fighter aircraft being hoisted on board (in the red area). The dimensions of the airship can be found easily online (so I won't bore you with that),  But you can see a size comparison of the ZRS-5 Macon with a Boeing 747-200 in the lower right corner. 
   Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
   Thanks, 
   L.
