Aircraft Development Corporation ZMC-2
ZMC-2 at Lakehurst, January 1935
Built by the Aircraft Development Corporation of Detroit in 1929, less famous and successful was the ZMC-2, world’s only successfully-operated metal-skinned airship.
She was operated by the U.S. Navy until 1941. Nicknamed “The Tin Airship”, the ZMC-2 was constructed out of Alclad, an aluminum alloy clad with a very thin layer of pure aluminum. The Navy dismantled her after 752 flights (2265 hours of flight time).
