The US had a monopoly on helium , all US Navy Lighter than air craft were filled with it rather than hydrogen like the German Airships had to be! The 1930s was the heyday era for lighter than air!
The US Navy built four dirigibles, eventually they all crashed and the program was ended. My Great Uncle Albert Watson was the cook aboard the Shenandoah!
