Goodyear K-class Airship: Light from Above.

This Stunning image is perhaps the most famous photo ever taken of a WW2 US.Navy patrol blimp. The “K-ship” manufacturer, Goodyear Aircraft, employed this photo -colourized- in an advertisement lauding the safety record these blimps achieved as merchant ships convoy “shepherds”.

In my opinion the B&W original needs no further colours.
