I came for the zeppelin industry as a whole but stayed for the particular story of the Graf Zeppelin admittedly there weren't many zeppelins overall so this makes sense Full review at link

Dr Hugo Eckener was the visionary behind the development of modern rigid frame airships in Germany up to the start of WW2 Eckener's fight to fund the construction of these behemoths included national donation campaigns and verbal battles with Nazi administrators It describes an around the world trip made by airship long before GPS navigation or even national road systems provided a safety net in case of failure The author's style is a bit dry at times but you get a good sense of how a German population recovering from WW1 rallied around the idea how long and hard the development was and how WW2 finally delayed implementation long enough for aircraft to far surpass airship capabilitiesLooked at one way airships and flying boats were a solution to the problem of not having airports After WW2 when aircraft performance was way up and runways had been built in many places these technologies were no longer generally needed They become a small niche in the greater aviation market

I suppose we've all seen the Goodyear or Fuji blimp and wondered what it might be like to go for a ride By the way a blimp is a malformed balloon with rudder and fins whereas a dirigible or zeppelin has a rigid skeleton making them suitable for long distance trips and less susceptible to the effects of inclement weather The US Navy never did much with airships especially after the Shenandoah was torn apart during a storm over Ohio in 1925Anyway Dr Hugo Eckener might be considered the founding father of the modern passenger airship He's one of those extraordinary people who devote their lives to a particular technology and are singularly good at it He shepherded the program and was the driving force behind the around the world trip in 1929 Eckener was drafter by Count Zeppelin to take over his building program after Eckener then a journalist wrote critically of zeppelin development in 1906Funded by the Hearst fortune the Graf Zeppelin's voyage was a sensation That it survived was due to Eckener's skill who had become a meteorological expert and who managed even to tag along on the tails of a typhoon to gain extra speed Their trip across Siberia was the fastest ever exceeding even train travel by several days There were several close shaves Crossing the final mountain range they had no reliable charts to indicate the height of the mountains and the maximum altitude of the GZ was about 8500 feet but to gain that altitude would have reuired dumping huge amounts of hydrogen that would have seriously degraded the performance They wound their way through ever narrowing valleys between mountain peaks with the sides of the mountains at times only 250 feet away from the GZ It was an extraordinary display of airshipmanship It must have been a terrific way to travel gliding across the countryside at a height of usually around 1500 feet although storms might loosen the sphincter than a little Apparently the passenger accommodations were uite luxurious although every precaution was taken to avoid anything that might have contributed to open flame It's ironic how many of the passengers got angry because they were not allowed to smoke and immolate themselvesAs anyone who remembers elementary physics knows the volume and lifting power of gas is greatly influenced by temperature In the atmosphere temperature inversions are relatively common and approaching Los Angeles they hit one that had a 10 degree difference Since in an airship that large lift increase by 660 lbs for every one degree decrease in temperature the ten degree difference that day made the ship 4000 lbs lighter which reuired venting substantial amounts of gas in order to land That made for an almost catastrophic departure because they had no hydrogen gas at the facility and in order to get off they had to make an aerodynamic liftoff using the engines to push it into the air Unfortunately there were power lines at the end of the field The cleared the gondola by a matter of feet and then had to dive down in order to bring the tail up which had a fin which would have hit the power lines on the way up Tribute to extraordinary airship piloting but a real horror for the passengersFollowing their return to Germany Eckener set about creating a transatlantic line and settled on South America as the perfect destination It was too far for airplanes and steamships were relatively slower He inaugurated a trip that was 18000 miles in length from Spain to Argentina to Cuba to Lakehurst and back to Europe There were some bumps along the way They had to detour around Cuba because of storms and that pissed off some passengers who had paid enormous sums of money for the trip and wanted to land in Cuba In any case a terrific storm had to be crossed in order to reach Lakehurst something he could not bypass since it was a refueling point The dirigible was tossed around like a galloping horse bucking up and down terrifying everyone but the ship suffered almost no damageFor its brief time the dirigible filled a need for long distance nonstop travel The cost was horribly high for passengers about 70000 in today's dollars for the South America trip and most of the money was made in first trip by dirigible stamp cancellations and mail Unfortunately the dirigible was doomed for even as the GZ was making its triumphant voyage a British fighter pilot exceeded 350 mph in his plane Of course the Hindenburg was the final nail in the coffinHighly recommendedAdditional readingThe Golden Age of the Great Passenger Airships Graf Zeppelin and HindenburgThe Great DirigiblesOhio's Airship Disaster The Story of the Crash of the USS ShenandoahNB 91213 Just discovered this fascinating documentary of the Round the World trip
