Blimp

Perhaps the first master chess game played on a blimp occurred on the opening day of the 1932 Pasadena International Chess Congress (won by Alekhine).  On the opening day in August, Isaac Kashdan and Arnold Dake played an exhibition game over Pasadena in a Goodyear blimp called “Volunteer.”  The blimp had been used during the Olympic games in Los Angeles.  The moves were transmitted by radio to the opening luncheon meeting.  The game was declared drawn by repetition after 19 moves.
