Eckener

An American board member from Oklahoma. He has a keen interest in the history of aviation, particularly that AH.commer favourite, airships. His nickname on the board is a dead giveaway about this, since it references Hugo Eckener.


Works

He demonstrated the aforementioned interest in airships in his first two timelines published on AH.com :

The Airship President

The Airship Legacy

Both deal with different historical developments in the rigid airship industry and how the changes in it also affect the wider world, its politics, economy and culture. Several historical personalities appear, including ones immortalized by the zeppelin-building industry (yes, including the real Eckener and others).


Blog on AH

Eckener also runs his own AH-themed blog, called The Weekly Chrononaut. Check it out.
