Scurrying around wikipedia and so on its hard to find how many people crewed an airship. The R101 which crashed in 1930 had 45 crew. The Hindenburg which infamously crashed at Lakehurst in 1937 had 97 people on board but that included passengers. The USS Akron had 76 passengers and crew aboard when it crashed in 1933, so it seems around 45 to 60 people crewed a civilian airship. Add wartime machine gun crews and bombardiers and you could have 60 to 80 crew.Given that not all would bail out in time in a (fire?) crash you could be looking at half that number parachuting down I suppose. So... 30 to 40 men.
Thanks for the info, I'll work on an opening post based on your numbers. I hope/assume Linna won't object, though I only really needed a ball-park figure to have an idea of how many men might overrun the club.
30 to 40 people mostly trying to get to the ground without going squish. Most of your excitement will come from the large flaming airship coming in to crash right on top of your club
Oops...I wrote my post before I read this. I do love very much how it came out though, so I hope you'll allow me to keep it as is?
I'll allow it. This time *glare glare* kidding. It'll be fine, but please don't go all Rambo and try to take on the entire German Army by yourself.
Of course, the sides are a little uneven, if you don't count our female French expat.
