Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Oh the wonder of real airships!
This video is a compilation of clips from the flights of the Graf Zeppelin, including some from her circumnavigation in 1929. She carried thousands of passengers in almost 300 flights without any issues at all.



"What ifs" abound here.
What would the world be like if this had been the preferred mode of civilian transport?

Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
