Review: A Great Airship Video
There are plenty of excellent airship sites on the Web. I’ve listed a few in the List of Interesting Things. Many others remain to be discovered. But if you’ve ever wondered what might have been like to actually ride aboard one of the great airships of the 1920s and 30s, check out this superb Youtube video about the Graf Zeppelin. There’s no way of knowing how long it will be around, for Youtube links can be the most ephemeral of things. But it has some superb views of flight operations, the sound of those engines is priceless, and that couple in their stateroom with a bottle of wine is a glimpse of an entirely different aviation experience from the one we endure in the back row of a 747 Model 400 en route from Amsterdam Schiphol to SFO.
