At 6:45 am on May 13, the land is spotted in the distance. It’s Alaska. The landscape remains desolate for a long time even when the airship actually arrives to fly over the mainland. The first human presence seen from above is a small group of Inuit. Five or six people, dressed in traditional parkas, watching with interest and surprise the airship that passes 200 meters above them.
The bad weather does not decrease and the crew wanders in the thick fog, losing awareness of the route they are following several times. After tens of hours of ordeal, in which they risk crashes with barely visible heights and they have to face temporary loss of control of the airship, the Norge finds itself on the sea near the Bering Strait and can, albeit with difficulty, start a long journey along the coast of Alaska.
