Errata in September issue of AIRSHIP

The article on helium supply that appears starting on page 13 of the September issue of AIRSHIP was mistakenly attributed to Mr. Dan N Baciu of Linde Gas.  The excerpt from the presentation given at the Airship Convention in June was also published in error and without Linde's permission.

I wish to make clear that Mr. Baciu had no input whatsoever in the article and wish to apologize for any confusion caused.
