LZ 126, the Los Angeles

Built by the Zeppelin Company in 1922-23 for the U.S. Navy. The Los Angeles was America's premiere big airship and at the time, the largest ever built. She was also the only U.S. airship to survive until her decommissioning, in 1932.


LZ 127, the Graf Zeppelin

Arguably the most important zeppelin ever built, the Graf Zeppelin proved what could be done with a properly run and maintained zeppelin. The Graf Zeppelin was the ultimate in passenger air travel for the day and could put any modern commercial jet to shame when it comes to comfort and style. The Graf was first walked out of her hanger on the 18th of September, 1928. She would fly farther than any zeppelin before or since.
LZ 129, the Hindenburg

Remembered for all the wrong reasons, this mighty airship made itself famous far before its disastrous end. First flown in tests on March 4, 1936, the Hindenburg made its first flight on March 26 of the same year. She would make several awe-inspiring flights before its destruction at Lakehurst, New Jersey.
