Airship Italia - Crash of Italia

The same tail wind that had helped Italia to the Pole now impeded her progress. Nobile calculated that the return journey would take 40 hours, and had discussed their options with Dr Malmgren in the hours before their arrival at the Pole. Nobile considered a trans-polar route to Mackenzie Bay in Canada but, according to Nobile, Malmgren advised a return to Kings Bay, predicting lessening winds on their return trip. On the other hand, Malmgren anticipated a head wind all the way if the Canadian route was attempted. No doubt the prospect of a forced landing in the Canadian wilderness was unpalatable to both men, as it would mean the end of the expedition.

Airship Italia - Crash of Italia

The first critical incident occurred at 9:25am on 25 May, when the elevator control jammed in the downward position while the ship was travelling at less than 1000 ft altitude. All engines were stopped and the Italia began to rise again after it had dropped to within 300 ft of the jagged ice pack. The airship was allowed to continue rising to 3000 ft and above the cloud layer into bright sunlight for 30 minutes. After two engines were restarted, the ship descended to 1000 ft with no apparent ill effect, with the headwind appearing to decrease slightly allowing an airspeed of 30 mph. Malmgren took the helm with Zappi supervising him, and Cecioni continued to operate the elevators.

Airship Italia - Crash of Italia

Travelling directly south on a heading for Kings Bay, after 24 hours of increasing head winds and thick mist, the Italia was only halfway back to base. The airship struggled to gain ground and break through to the zone of calmer winds which expedition meteorologist Finn Malmgren predicted was just ahead. Ice was forming on the propellers and shooting off into the envelope, which necessitated running repairs. Engine speed was increased but with little effect, except for a doubling of fuel consumption. Dr Běhounek, who was in charge of the compass, started to report variations in course of up to 30 degrees, and the elevator man Cecioni had similar problems maintaining control. By 07:30 on 25 May, Nobile, who had been awake for over 48 hours, knew that the situation was critical and Giuseppe Biagi, the wireless operator, sent out the message: "If I don't answer, I have good reason". By dead reckoning, Nobile estimated his position to be 100 mi northeast of Moffen Island; instead they were 200 mi east of the island.
