COMMERCIAL ZEPPELIN MAIL 1928-1937 – Dickson Preston

          Graf Zeppelin in Brazil

The Graf Zeppelin and Hindenburg flew scheduled transatlantic airmail for five years during which heavier-than-air craft could not yet fly across the Atlantic on a regular basis. The extensive display of commercial mail seen in this exhibit shows the contribution these airships made to an important chapter of airmail postal history.
