Today in 1935 USS Macon was lost to accident. She was the last of the giant airships like the Hindenburg to be used by the US Navy and the last flying aircraft carrier, with her complement of six Sparrowhawk biplanes.
Today we remember USS Macon.
And also the Sparrowhawk, the only parasite fighter to actually see regular service.
