The Graf Zeppelin was named for its inventor, Count Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin. It was by far the most successful airship ever to have flown. No other lighter-than-air craft before or since has ever come close to matching its successes.
The Graf Zeppelin flew around the world starting from Lakehurst New Jersey between August 8th through the 29th all while experiencing no major disruptions. Now you can commemorate this event with this awesome shirt!
The Graf Zeppelin was also the very first aircraft (before airplanes) to be part of a trans-Atlantic passenger airline service and it successfully flew thousands of passengers between Europe and the Americas without incident. All this happened at a time when travel by airplane was still a life or death affair.
Today so little is remembered about Zeppelins and their amazing feats for their time. Show off this unique part of aviation history and look stylish while doing it!
