30 mins - Published Sun, May 28, 2017 by Jeff Kelley

On August 16, 1942, a blimp carrying two men left the coast of San Francisco to look for, and possibly destroy, enemy submarines. Five hours later, the airship was found, crashed in the middle of a suburban street. The two navy men were gone.

To this day, no one knows what became of the two men, leading some to call the mysterious airship… The Ghost Blimp.
