An Aug. 14, 1955 story for the Sunday Magazine about blimps and their return to the air for submarine spotting and “continental defense” did not include this image, taken in a hangar in New Jersey, though it mentioned the perils of working with helium. “The record of lighter-than-air logs the death of one sailor, who — while working on a hangared blimp, on top of the tough envelope of the bag — fell into the sea of helium inside and was smothered before he could be extricated,” reported Hanson W. Baldwin. Mr. Baldwin goes on to mention the special masks workers were supposed to use, but evidently, the gentlemen in this photo had not yet read the report. Photo: George Tames/The New York Times
