Judging from the number of posts,there must have been as many helium cars as X29s.For the record, just how many were there? <G> Armand Premo

A buddy of mine here in Baton Rouge, lost his dad who was a naval derigible pilot out of Lakehurst while on a rescue mission in the Atlantic . I seem to recall him telling me it was in '63

FWIW, the Navy was still operating blimps out of Mustin Field, at the
Philadelphia Naval Base, at least as late as 1953, and probably later then that out
of Lakehurst, NJ. As a boy I lived in Sewell, NJ, about 15 miles SSE of
Philadelphia, and blimps were a common sight. You could expect to see one or more any
clear day when the wind was not too strong.
