16. USS Los Angeles (ZR-3))
The USS Los Angeles ascends uncontrollably from its mooring mast, 1927.
It was the result of a tailwind that suddenly came in, and instead of pivoting sideways around the mooring to point into the new wind, the ship went up and over the mooring. The event lasted only 90 seconds or so but was apparently a hell of a sight. Little damage resulted.

#3 is confusing to me. Floating trees? How does one supposed to read this photo?
I guess the treetops that are strung up would trick enemy soldiers and aircraft into thinking that there is no road but a forest. It is similar to how you can sometimes tell where a lake or pond would be while hiking because there are no treetops in an area.
I was thinking the same thing. I had no idea at what I was looking.
