The US Navy’s Zeppelin

I caught this little item on a radio newscast. Seems they’ve discovered the undersea wreckage of a huge airship of the Navy, the USS Macon that crashed in 1935. I never knew the US military had dirigibles similar to the Hindenburg that infamously went down in flames. This one had bi-planes it could deploy and retrieve.
