The Crash of Navy Blimp L-8

16 August 1942

The Crash Site Today

The site of where L-8 came to rest is still a residential neighborhood in Daly City.  Cars are still parked on Bellevue Avenue in the same matter as they were in 1942, although they are slightly more modern. A white dab of paint marked the spot where the blimp's journey on that day came to an end.
