80-G-55205: Refueling the K-84 after landing at Pici Field, Fortaleza, Brazil. She is the first U.S. blimp to operate on anti-submarine patrol from a South American base. The trip from Lakehurst, New Jersey, to Fortaleza was the longest ever made for a craft of this kind. The slack in the hose permits the blimp to swing with the wind. .
