Best crane game prize I’ve ever seen.
From an old timer on air warriors:
"Here is one from an April 1982 weps det to El Centro while instructing at VT-22. Filming was in progress for Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi in the desert between Yuma and El Centro. We would make a daily run (time permitting) past the set after working the targets and often wondered if we ever disrupted any scenes.”

From Wikipedia Picture Of The Day; September 30, 2014:
USS Macon was a rigid airship built and operated by the United States Navy for scouting. It also served as a “flying aircraft carrier”, carrying biplane parasite aircraft, either five single-seat Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawks for scouting or two-seat Fleet N2Y-1s for training. Launched in 1933, Macon was in service for less than two years: in 1935 it was damaged in a storm and lost off California’s Big Sur coast. Its wreckage is listed as “USS Macon Airship Remains” on the National Register of Historic Places.
