USS Akron (ZRS-4)
View of the airship's lower starboard side, amidships between frames 125 and 147.5, taken during her commissioning ceremonies at Lakehurst, New Jersey, 27 October 1931.
This section was left uncovered until after the ceremonies so the Public could see into Akron's interior. Important design features are labeled.
