Strung out over a coastal inlet, a fleet of Navy blimps steers for home. Known to the Navy as "K Ships"--denoting their class--they are a sturdy breed. The lines trailing from the blimp in the foreground are handling lines, which will be caught by the landing crews to ease the big craft into a soft landing.
