: I really appreciate you taking the time to explain that. I often wondered as well...(about the drop from the blimp, and subsequent lift). Indy, having fought in WWI, obviously understood the basics of the maneuver, although he never executed it himself...until that point. It was a very subtle look at real military tactics regarding zeppelins.
: One thing I like about this message board is the room for expanding the Indy 'world' beyond the fun aspect of the film, and into discussions about a very interesting point in our history. It is fun to examine why we saw what we did in these films, and shows that the film makers really did their research with regard to our hero's surroundings.
: Thanks for the interesting background, Michaelson.
: I wish more of the cut scenes from the blimp were shown.
