Great footage of the Akron

This is the first time I come across this film. The quality is quite good and it shows the Akron being removed from the hangar, in flight and being moored.

She was a beautiful craft, but they asked too much from her, at a time when the materials / technology simply couldn't cope with it...same with many other giants airships.
