The second USS Los Angeles was a rigid airship, designated ZR-3, that was built in 1923-1924 by the Zeppelin factory in Friedrichshafen, Germany, where it was originally designated LZ-126. The airship was given to the United States by the German Government, as it was partially funded by war reparations from World War I. - After the highly publicized October, 1924, Transatlantic delivery flight from the Zeppelin Company works in Friedrichshafen to the US Naval Air Station at Lakehurst, New Jersey,[2] the airship was commissioned into the US Navy on November 25, 1924 at Anacostia, D.C. with LCDR Maurice R. Pierce in command. Its lifting gas was also switched over from hydrogen to helium, which reduced payload but improved safety (Wikipedia). KEYWORDS:Airship/photo
