Welcome, and thank you for visiting our site! We are Atlantis Productions. We publish books and produce videos on airship history. We have been in the LTA History business since 1990 with the goal of publishing works on this subject, which is not often pursued by mainstream book publishers or respected by commercial television. Under the 'Airship History' tab we offer a quick overview of the history with links to where specific, more detailed information can be found. Our first book was "US Navy Pressure Airships" by James R Shock. Since then we have published more than two dozen LTA-related titles. You will find these by clicking on the "Book Store" tab.
Over the many years we have produced the Airship History Video Series consisting of 5 DVDs, each devoted to a distinct chapter of Airship History. Narrated (two by actual airship pilots) with music and sound effects, these DVDs are not timed with commercial breaks or made with the inexpensive "talking heads" commonly seen on television. The series contains tens of thousands of dollars worth of rare film of actual airships, not re-creations. Written for and by airship fans, each was carefully researched and meticulously complete. You will find these five DVDs listed by clicking on the "Video Store"tab.
Airship enthusiasts have expressed desire to see the raw, uncut footage from which the series was built. Very rarely, a television producer wants to do something other than just blow up the Hindenburg for quick bucks. So we offer much of the raw material used in making the 5-part DVD series by means of the Ensemble Edit Series of DVDs. Drawing from many hundreds of master tapes from the National Archives and other sources, each DVD of the Ensemble Edits offers about an hour on the title subject. You will find these listed also by clicking on the "Video Store" tab.
We also published a "what if" novel of the rigid airship in World War II, entitled "ZRS," and are working to make it a major motion picture. You will find the movie merchandise under that tab. Recently, we have also published the recollections of three WWII Air Corps veterans. These are also listed by clicking the "Book Store" tab.
Our site is often updated and more histories will be added as time goes on. Please check back with us periodically for updates on progress with new projects including "ZRS" - the movie!
