  • Description

    ZEPPELIN..TAKING TO THE AIR AGAIN IN THE JET AGE. A NAME THAT CONJURES UP TERRIBLE AIR DISASTERS, LIKE THE ILL-FATED R-101 OF BRITAIN AND THE HINDENBURG OF GERMANY. AND RECALLS THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE AIRSHIP WHEN GERMANY RAN THE MAIN SERVICES ACROSS THE ATLANTIC IN CRAFT LIKE THE FAMOUS GRAF ZEPPELIN AND WENT AROUND THE WORLD IN 20 DAYS IN 1929.

    TODAY, THE AIRSHIP IS A SMALLER AFFAIR. THIS ONE IN BONN IS MAKING ITS FIRST TEST FLIGHT. AND OUR CAMERAMAN WENT UP IN IT FOR A VIEW FROM 280 METRES OF THE CITY'S PROMINENT BUILDING LIKE THE CHANCELLOR'S RESIDENCE AND THE PARLIAMENT.
