, 14, -1339 Flotilla Of Three Sails Over Gotham On Quiet Days By OEpitOE ROSS •NfcW YORk, Sept. 14.—There is a ba)10:n barrage over* Manhattan, too, b'ul this one Is unhampered by a' mesh of cable and serves no military purpose. In fact the floillln of blimps dawdling idly in the Manhattan sky has esme lo be a common ,-iiglit. ;By day ami night, these unhur- rittt blimps take a sky-stroll over , Uic fhetrouolls; for sightseeing by day, for promotional purposes at night, . ' ,;Tii? three blimps that regularly erillse' the air above Manhattan belong to the rubber company «,|ilch made them, on Uielr helium-filled rHj.5, a neon sign spells out, at night ail . advertisement or Uo, local weather Information and a periodic chatter item.' It is quite a sight from the street to. see crimson bulbs in the sky fld^vlEe Pair visitors where lo go, what to wear tomorrow and what I If 6.5 to buy. When the -British King and Queen were here, for example, tlie entire flotilla \v a s cut will) a neon grelJIn'g to Their Majesties. SKYSCRAPERS AND AIRSHIPS DON'T GET ALONG ; BUI the b'llmps also take passengers. They take six apiece, mainly in the daylig-ht, flying: Uiclr fares oil a slow, aerial route over Man- Ifattan Island. The-blimps like to travel .directly abave the Hudson, (he East and Harlem Rivers where the atmosphere Is smooth and .the ride is. too. Skyscrapers, it seems, distress the blimp and aeroplane rieSause- they cause an ttpdraft Which produce.? pitch and toss in' the air. i,tlie home grounds for New York's blimp bevy is the Bendix Field which lies across the river in. Hew Jersey. It is a modcrnly equipped Held, with two-way radio, n.,'weather forecaster and a formidable ground cre\v. Blimps den't go tip unless the weather is ideal. And at signs of stormy weather, pilots are radioed their orders to turn about and come home. Of course, any of Papa Knickerbocker's blimps' could, in a pinch, tie np at the lop of .the Empire -State Building where .a mooring mast has been waiting since the skyscraper was completed. -. : . ...-,. ... ;flhe corhmandeivln-chief of this laiy blimp battalion is a Capt. Jack BbeUner,,,a.n aerial'veteran of the first World War. He runs the' blimps' day-by-day activities from the airport where he dictates when they shall;.stay ..down or go up. i-'^He idotsn't ,'work, on margin. Unless' : the weather forecasts; are- per-. 1 rfect • for 'H-- spin:'around the city, • he...leaves-the •helium-filled ships grounded. Not ; that' the captain wmld have • any ; personal fidgets about it. 1 "He Js the charter member of that exclusive fraternity, the Caterpillar Club, which is made up of: men who came, down safely will parachutes froin a. mishap in (he nil'-. . ' • ".-' DRUNKS-ARE : OUT: AS PASSENGERS .,-Tiie captain appreciates the awe ot .sightseers who have seen the city from the blimp gcndola. But .116 shuns the playboys and play>girls who,, with various drinks from trii.s or that bar under their belts ca_ll in to charter one of his blimps. Often a cafe society crowd calls «p to book a special I rip, bnt Caplain Boettner regards his guests warily before he permits them lo ascend. .Nor is he tolerant lo Hie boys who would use the blimps for assorted ballyhoo purpses and he has declined all kinds of offers from folk who have offered to go higher than twice the vertical extent of the Empire Stiitc and bail out in a parachute for the fun cr the. publicity of it. To New Yorkers, (lie sight of a three-Wimp flotilla floating gracefully in the air, has become familiar, and pretty they Icok, too. in the dusk or in the sun when they are blazing streaks of silver. They arc peaceful ships but they can be commandeered any time by the army, navy, coast guard or police. This is a hope that (hey never will be.
