Edward Packard My father, Edward B.
Packard, who died inwas a Navy blimp pilot in WWI, stationed at Lakehurst, assigned to anti-submarine warfare duty. Unfortunately, my brother and I never inquired about his service as much as we wish we had.
We know only that during WWI his blimp collapsed and that he and his crewman drifted for some time in a life raft before being picked up by a Chilean freighter. I also recall that he made a flight from Montauk to Key West, which may have been the longest ever undertaken at that time.
I wonder if you have any records, contemporary writings, etc. Lakehurst did not become an active Naval Air Station until and many of the World War One era Navy blimp personnel had already left the service.
Hamp Miller What ever happened to the Hindenburg's engines As the wreckage was dismantled and gathered together, the engines were set aside and shipped back to Germany to be evaluated and stripped for usable spare parts.
Contrary to some of the rumors that have come out over the years, there was no "secret conspiracy" by the surviving German crewmen to suppress or destroy anything concerning the power plant installation. Though the engines were considered "proprietary technology" there was little about them that American personnel Airship engines were different from airplane engines in that they had multiple requirements of reasonably high horsepower, good power-to-weight ratio, the ability to be self-reversing in The historical cost convention used in absence of reversible-pitch propellers which hadn't been developed yet, low fuel consumption at cruising speeds and TBO "time between overhauls" of hours or more, making them suitable for use on long journeys.
The Daimlers had their share of troubles in the beginning, particularly uneven cooling, unacceptably high carbon buildups in the cyliner heads and a tendency to "smoke" at high power settings, but this was overcome in time a lot being accomplished thru the use of special high-grade Royal Dutch Shell fuel oil as well as coal-based synthetic "Kogasyn-2" oil manufactured in Germany.
Any information about this event will be appreciated. Terhune was something of a celebrity for his flight. After this, extra precautions were taken to guard against stowaways; the very few stowaways that made it past the guards found were kept under virtual "house arrest" during the flight, put to work cleaning toilets, peeling vegatables etc.
Since the extra weight of a stowaway could impair the ship's ability to carry fuel, ballast and provisions it was considered a threat to the ship's safety and those aboard to have a stowaway compromising their careful weight distribution calculations.

Did the naval ground crew have one? Navy personnel wore their uniforms and were assigned to groups headed by Chief Petty Officers under the overall direction of the Ground Handling Officer and the Commander of the Air Station, so there was no neeed for them to wear ID badges.
Government officials and observers had badges that said "Official" press members had badges saying "press" and civilian ground crew had badges marked "ground crew" and these were all pin-backed celluloid badges bearing the signature of base Commander C.
Any BRASS or metal "Hindenburg Ground Crew" badges you may see out there are 's era fakes that were common items at flea markets and air shows for a number of years.
I was an AE2 and a crew member of that Airship. I was a docking mule driver, on the starboard side as we were attempting to place the blimp into the hanger due to inclement weather.
We were about halfway in when gust of wind, estimated at 50 mph, hit the ship broadside, causing the port side docking mule to be tipped on it's side, snapping their cable. In an attempt to stop the bag from hitting the side of the hanger, I immediately drove my mule at a 45 degree angle towards the port side and attempted to maintain tension on the cable while the tractor driver tried to back the mooring mast back outside.
The combination of the mooring mast moving backwards and my cable tension, trying to keep the envelope from hitting the side, caused my docking mule to begin to be tipped, front to back. When I was tipped, to what I perceived to be approximately a 45 degree angle front to back, I fired the emergency cable cutter to keep from being tipped all the way over.
With my cable cut, the wind drove the last 5 feet of the tail into the corner of the hanger and the bag just simply ripped and collapsed.
Thank God no one was injured, but the world's largest blimp, at the time, was destroyed.
