The Norge was a semi-rigid Italian-built airship that carried out the first verified trip of any kind to the North Pole. The expedition was the brainchild of polar explorer and expedition leader Roald Amundsen. The ship was designed and piloted by Italian aviator and aeronautic engineer Umberto Nobile. It was co-financed by Aero Club of Norway and American explorer Lincoln Ellsworth, who also participated on the expedition himself.
