-Junior Editors Quiz on- AIRCRAFT SWEETIE PIE By Nodine Seltzer QUESTION: Who invented the blimp? ANSWER: A blimp is a large cigar-shaped balloon that ra- •embles a dirigible. But, unlike a dirigible, it has no metal framework and collapses when the gas is removed. Blimps were developed, rather than invented, by American and British aircraft engineers. The British called them "limps" and the most popular model was called Type B. Pretty soon the "B" was added to the "limp and it became "blimp.'' Blimps were used during World War II for submarine patrol and convoy work. They were able to Lover over a particular place in the ocean and spot enemy submarines who were trying to sink ships. FOR YOU TO DO: Until the 1930s, blimps and dirigibles usually were filled with hydrogen gas. Now helium gas is used. See if you can find out why the type of gas was changed.
