Graf Zeppelin Over Leeds UK 1931

Probably only of interest to Leeds people like me, but I thought this was fascinating.

The LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin was the sister ship of the Hindenburg airship and offered the first transatlantic passenger service. It made 590 flights before being taken out of service after the Hindenburg disaster. You can view its flight log here.

You can read more about the craft on its Wikipedia page
