Lighter Than Air/Mrs. Hanes' Moravian Cookies

Season 700 Episode 702 | 28m 32s

In the flatlands just south of Elizabeth City looms a monolithic monument to a mostly forgotten chapter of World War II. We will visit the giant Weeksville hangar that harbored Lighter than Air control craft and learn how they helped turn the tide in the Atlantic. Then, travel to Clemmons, and meet the remarkable family behind Mrs. Hanes' Moravian Cookies.
