Lighter than Air

In the flatland’s just south of Elizabeth City looms a monolithic monument to a mostly forgotten chapter of World War II. We will visit the giant Weeksville hangar that harbored lighter-than-air control craft and learn how they helped turn the tide in the Atlantic. Our State is produced through a partnership between Our State magazine and UNC-TV and is made possible through generous support from BB&T. This segment first aired on November 7, 2013.
