Highlighted by a genuine piece of the fabric used to cover the famous Graf Zeppelin airship, we are delighted to present this imposing tribute to aeronautical pioneer and creator of the rigid airship, Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin (1838-1917).

Inspired by hot-air balloons whilst serving as a volunteer for the Union Army during the 1861-65 American Civil War, von Zeppelin spent several decades refining his vision of a rigid airship until, in 1900, the first successful airship was launched - the Zeppelin LZ1. Used for both military and civilian transport, von Zeppelin's important invention had safely transported over 34,000 passengers on more than 1,600 flights by 1914. Having had a tremendous, if brief, impact on the world of air travel, the crash of the Hindenburg in the USA in 1937 brought 'The Golden Age of the Airship' to an end.
