May 30, — With the Atlantic hurricane season just around the corner, C Spire is waiving the one-time activation charge and monthly service fee for Wireless Priority Service WPSwhich gives eligible emergency response agencies and personnel a higher priority connection to its mobile communications network during a crisis or natural disaster. While priority calls do not preempt calls in progress, WPS allows authorized users to gain priority access to the next available wireless channel on the C Spire network, thereby increasing the probability of call completion during emergencies and times of crisis, according to Eric Hollingsworth, vice president of Network Operations for C Spire. The latest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast calls for as many as eight to 13 named tropical storms to form in the Atlantic Ocean during the six-month period that officially begins on June 1. Three to six of those storms could strengthen into hurricanes with top winds of at least 74 mph and one to two could become major hurricanes with maximum winds of mph or more.

The full-resolution picture labels more internals. The principal feature of Zeppelin's design was a fabric-covered rigid metal framework made up from transverse rings and longitudinal girders containing a number of individual gasbags.
The framework of most Zeppelins was made of duralumin a combination of aluminum and copper as well as two or three other metals— its exact content was kept a secret for years.
Early Zeppelins used rubberised cotton for the gasbags, but most later craft used goldbeater's skinmade from the intestines of cattle. They were propelled by several enginesmounted in gondolas or engine cars, which were attached to the outside of the structural framework.
Some of these could provide reverse thrust for manoeuvring while mooring.
Early models had a comparatively small externally mounted gondola for passengers and crew which was attached to the bottom of the frame.
This space was never heated fire outside of the kitchen was considered too risky so passengers during trips across the North Atlantic or Siberia were forced to bundle themselves in blankets and furs to keep warm and were often miserable with the cold.
By the time of the Hindenburg, several important changes had taken place: The flight ceiling was so low that no pressurization of the cabins was necessary, though the Hindenburg did maintain a pressurized air-locked smoking room no flame allowed, however— one electric lighter was maintained permanently inside the room.
The Graf Zeppelin's gondola was accessed while the vessel was on the ground, via gangways. The Hindenburg also had passenger gangways that led from the ground directly into its hull and which could then be withdrawn entirely, ground access to the gondola and an exterior access hatch via its electrical room; this was intended for crew use only.
Early designs[ edit ] Ferdinand von Zeppelin Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin 's serious interest in airship development began inwhen he took inspiration from a lecture given by Heinrich von Stephan on the subject of "World Postal Services and Air Travel" to outline the basic principle of his later craft in a diary entry dated 25 March Convinced of the potential importance of aviation, he started working on various designs inand had completed detailed designs by An official committee reviewed his plans in and he received a patent, granted on 31 August with Theodor Kober producing the technical drawings.
The front section, containing the crew and engines, was Zeppelin also sought support from the industrialist Carl Bergthen engaged in construction work on the second airship design of David Schwarz. Berg was under contract not to supply aluminium to any other airship manufacturer, and subsequently made a payment to Schwartz's widow as compensation for breaking this agreement.
The intention behind the floating hall was to facilitate the difficult task of bringing the airship out of the hall, as it could easily be aligned with the wind. Despite this performance, the shareholders declined to invest more money, and so the company was liquidated, with Count von Zeppelin purchasing the ship and equipment.
The Count wished to continue experimenting, but he eventually dismantled the ship in This renewed the interest of the German military, but a condition of purchase of an airship was a hour endurance trial. During the stop, a storm tore the airship away from its moorings on the afternoon of 5 August It crashed into a tree, caught fire, and quickly burnt out.
No one was seriously injured. The airship remained on the ground until the following day, permitting a detailed examination by French airship experts. The airships did not provide a scheduled service between cities, but generally operated pleasure cruises, carrying twenty passengers.
The airships were given names in addition to their production numbers. On 28 June it set off on a voyage to publicise Zeppelins, carrying 19 journalists as passengers. A combination of adverse weather and engine failure brought it down at Mount Limberg near Bad Iburg in Lower Saxony, its hull getting stuck in trees.
All passengers and crew were unhurt, except for one crew member who broke his leg when he jumped from the craft. By the outbreak of World War I in August flights had carried 10, fare-paying passengers. On 18 January Admiral Alfred von TirpitzSecretary of State of the German Imperial Naval Office, obtained the agreement of Kaiser Wilhelm II to a five-year program of expansion of German naval-airship strength, involving the building of two airship bases and constructing a fleet of ten airships.
