>Coming in at low altitude, the airship’s propellers hit the surface of the ocean rendering it powerless. The submarine, commanded by Commander William Gibbson, attached the cable to the airship’s mooring line and started towing it toward Boca Chica Naval Air Station (Key West, FL). Closer to shore an air-sea rescue boat completed the towing job.
Wow. Didn’t know they still used airships in 52.
