AIRSHIP NORGE

The airship Norge floats above Spitzbergen, Norway, in May 1926, before an expedition over the North Pole by Norwedian explorer Roald Amundsen. On May 11, 1926 Amundsen and his crew, including Italian Umberto Nobile who constructed and piloted the ship departed in the Norge. Seventy-two hours later they landed at Teller, Alaska, becoming the first people to fly over the pole and confirming there was no land there. (AP Photo)
