Product Description

From earlier experience with rigid airships including the Zeppelin LZ120 Bodensee, handed over to Italy as part of WW1 war reparations, Umberto Nobile decided to concentrate on developing the semi-rigid type. Working in conjunction with Pirelli at the Italian government airship works near Rome, Colonel (later General) Nobile designed and directed the construction of N1, the first of a series of the type. Her first trial flights were in March 1924 and proved so successful that no changes in the design were necessary. It was not long before the team backing Roald Amundsen's attempts to fly to the North Pole assessed that the N1 was the craft most suited to the task. So in 1925 the famous Norwegian arctic explorer and his financial backer, American Lincoln Ellsworth chartered the N1 after which she was modified for extreme cold running and named Norge, meaning Norway. Norge departed from Kings Bay on the island of Spitzbergen on 11 May 1926 and reached the North Pole at 01h25 GMT the following day. Flags of the three nationalities represented on board were dropped on to the ice and by the third day the airship had reached the Eskimo village of Teller in North Alaska. Of the 16-man crew on the polar expedition, six were Italians with Nobile as the ship's captain; Amundsen of course was the expedition leader. Sadly there was some friction between the two, largely because Nobile felt as if he were being treated as no more than a hired hand. Their controversies during and after the voyage looked set to continue into future years but with the dramatic death of one of them in 1928, all antagonism departed.
