USS Macon christening ceremony – March 11, 1933.  The propellers could be rotated down or backwards, providing an early form of thrust vectoring, to control the ship during takeoff and landings. Designed to carry five F9C Sparrowhawk biplanes, the Macon first docked an aircraft on 6 July 1933 during trial flights out of Lakehurst, New Jersey.  The planes were stored in bays inside the hull and were launched and retrieved using a trapeze.
