Papers



Nobile was an Italian aeronautical engineer who designed two airships which figured prominently in Polar exploration. In the Norge he flew over the North Pole with Lincoln Ellsworth and Roald Amundsen (May, 1926). He commanded the Italia which crashed in May, 1928, after leaving Spitzbergen. Rescued June 22, 1928, he was later judged responsible for the crash.
