Original Description:
16mm Original Home Movie Lab PrintUS NAVY AIRSHIP BLIMP LANDING AT LAKEHURST,NJ (1936)OK... if you want to talk about rare... then it sure doesn't get anymore rare than this... here is an INCREDIBLE reel of 83 year old home movie footage of an actual US Navy Airship Blimp at the Lakehurst Naval Base in NJ the direct year before the historic Hindenburg tragedy... 1936...  this film has a view very few will EVER get to see... the fact that it ...shows awesome generous shots directly inside the cockpit and the crew as the airship is taking off into the sky... as it is flying around the historic Lakehurst Naval base... heading around the surrounding parts of Ocean County, NJ...  and then to it's eventful landing... and then it's docking proceedure... see the view from the sky to the ground and how they actually drove this ship... talk about rare... how many can say they ever even been in one of these blimps... and to witness the crew in action back in 1936 is just stunning... you almost feel like you are on the ship yourself... watch the old school way of how things were being done back then... this was either made by a worker on the base, a fellow crewman or even a family member of somebody in the service... great footage made by a steady hand and great equiptment...  thank God they captured the moment... and honestly... this may very well quite possibly be THE only print in the entire world... no... probably... try and find another one... well now you don't have to... for here it is... printed on Kodak Safety film stock.... and according to the edge codes.... it is indeed dated at 1936.... this film, to me, is not only very fascinating to watch...  SUPER historic footage right here... to our knowledge... this has NEVER been digitally transfered professionally... and could be of many uses for stock footage houses and for anyone making a documentary on airships... don't let this one pass you by folks... this almost feels like it belongs in a museum... pretty dang historic... and what we are asking is certainly a small price to pay considering it's true rarity... this one is ONLY going to increase in value as time goes on...    Not many of these EVER turn up so good luck and happy bidding... This would make an EXCELLENT addition to any film fan's collection... About the print: b/w silent film... about 7 minutes long... mounted on a core... NO vinegar smell and is NOT nitrate!Condition: Very Good...  The film runs nicely for such an old print... this is SILENT... sold AS-IS!!!!
