A Zeppelin airship takes its name from German
Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin -- a German General and inventor whose company -- Luftschiffbau Zeppelin (LZ)--led the development of the rigid flying machines in the
late 1800's / early 1900's. After the great success of Zeppelin's design, the word "zeppelin" became used
to refer to all rigid airships.
Zeppelins were first
flown commercially in 1910 by Deutsche Luftschiffahrts-AG (DELAG) -- essentially
the world's first airline service. By the outbreak of World War I in 1914, DELAG had made more than 1,500 flights. During
the war, the German military made use of Zeppelins for bombing and scouting.

large boat) // 3. By 1910, DELAG was flying the Zeppelins (now over 700-feet long) commercially.
The defeat of Germany in 1918 (engineered
by Jewish Marxists at home and Jewish Globalists & Zionists from the outside) slowed down DELAG's business substantially.
In 1919, DELAG's airships were surrendered under the terms of the vicious Treaty of Versailles which had
been imposed upon a disarmed Germany. The treaty also prohibited the Germans from building more airships. An exception was
made to allow for the construction of a single airship for the US Navy -- a transaction which spared DELAG from total extinction
and bought the company some more time.
In 1926 the restrictions
on airship construction were lifted at a time when some of the oppressive monetary reparations of the Versailles Treaty were
restructured. Work was then started on the construction of the airship, Graf Zeppelin (775 feet) -- named after the
Count. The company was revived and, during the 1930s, the airships Graf Zeppelin and the larger Hindenburg
(803-feet) operated regular transatlantic flights from Germany to North America and Brazil.
To enhance revenue, the zeppelins carried transatlantic mail from the United States to Europe.
Special postage stamps were minted and sold for this purpose -- but the practice was suddenly discontinued (by the U.S.)
and the unsold zeppelin stamps were destroyed by the Post Office (a most unusual act which enraged many stamp collectors
(here)) Although neither Hitler nor FDR were in power in 1930, could the sudden discontinuation and strange
destruction of the stamps have been the result of a general hatred of Germans held by some people (cough cough) already
embedded within the federal bureaucracy? Probably.
1. In 1919, the Allies ruined Germany at Versailles
--- not only seizing land, money, colonies, people and resources from innocent Germany, but also banning its amazing airships.
// 2 & 3. DELAG managed to hang on until the ban was lifted in 1926. In 1930, the U.S. Postal Service issued special air-mail
stamps for letters shipped to Europe aboard the Graf Zeppelin -- but suddenly discontinued the service and destroyed the remaining
stamps which could still have been sold to collectors.
The spire of the Empire State Building was originally designed to serve as a mooring mast
for the jaw-dropping 750-foot-long marvels of German engineering. But it was found that high winds associated with such high-altitude
moorings made the Manhattan mooring idea too impractical. The airships did pass over Jew York during the 1930's. After 1933,
the zeppelins came with Hitler's Swastika flag on the tail as street-level onlookers gave the "Sieg Heil" salute.
"Oy vey!"-- the "usual suspects" -- who had already, in 1933, "declared war" upon Germany --
must surely have shrieked.
The legendary Hindenburg
disaster of 1937, which occurred right here in New Jersey, along with, shall we say, "geo-political" issues (cough
cough) eventually brought about the demise of Zeppelins -- structures which had been the great pride of Germany -- both
before and during the righteous reign of The Great One (that's Hitler for all you newbies * normies).
The preceding account is pretty much
standard knowledge. But there is a little bit more to the story that (((they))) don't want you to know about.
1. Swastikas flying over New
York drove (((them))) crazy! // 2. 1937: The horrible explosion and crash was broadcast live via radio, and then shown on
pre-TV news reels (generally seen by movie-goers before the show starts) // 3. Hard to imagine -- given what was to come in
a few years -- that Americans saluted the flag-draped coffins of the fallen Germans.
1. The Hindenburg was a massive
structure and engineering marvel, but passenger space was limited. // 2 & 3. The dining room offered spectacular views,
slow moving views.
Begun in 1932 and finally launched in 1936, the Hindenburg Airship -- named after
Paul von Hindenburg -- measured an astounding 803 feet -- but its beautiful interior could only accommodate
about 100 people, a number which includes the well-to-do passengers and crew. General Hindenburg, we should note, was the
respected World War I general and later president of Germany who -- in order to break the contentious multi-party gridlock
that was crippling Germany -- named Hitler as Chancellor in 1933.
1. Hindenburg had died in 1934, at age 87 -- but the zeppelin bearing his name immortalized him.
The Jews and Communists HATED Hindenburg for enabling Hitler's rise in 1933. // 2. A 1933 KPD (German
Communist Party) poster blares: "An End to This System," and depicts an ominous Red threat aimed at Hitler and Hindenburg
(in pointy military helmet).
Prior zeppelins had always been designed to stay float using helium -- a gas which
is not flammable. At the time, however, helium was only available in industrial quantities from plants in the United
States. Despite a U.S. ban on the export of helium under the Helium Control Act of 1927, the Germans designed the Hindenburg
to use helium in the belief that the US government would license its export. But that assumption was made before
FDR and his Jewish-Marxist gang took over America in 1933.
Jewish pressure to destroy Germany began years before the actual second world war started. // 2. 1933.
Daily Express (London): "Judea Declares War on Germany." // 3. 1933 / NY Daily News
When the designers learned that FDR's administration would not allow helium to be shipped to "Nazi" Germany,
the Hindenberg was re-engineered to use hydrogen for its lift instead -- a gas which is flammable. The man responsible
for denying helium to Germany was Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes (cough cough) -- a
fanatical German-hater and FDR Marxist. Though the German engineering geniuses were still
able to construct a very safe airship -- because hydrogen was flammable -- there now existed an opportunity for an "accident"
with a plausible "explanation" for it.
On May 6, 1937, at the very moment that the Hindenburg was docking before an awed crowd at Lakehurst,
NJ, the grand airship burst into flames and crashed, killing 35 of the 97 passengers & crew. "Static electricity"
was blamed, yet the Hindenburg had previously endured direct lightning hits! The true cause of the explosion
remains unknown to this day. But the unusual amount of news reel cameras present that day, the helium embargo, the timing
of the mysterious ignition just as the ship was mooring, the hyping of the idiotic "static electricity" theory,
and the anti-German hysteria being whipped up by the press all combine to suggest that the Hindenburg disaster was actually
an act of sabotage. Theories ranged from an on-board fanatic-bomber to an incendiary rifle-bullet fired from the nearby
woods. The incident shattered confidence in Germany's zeppelins and marked the end of the airship era. How conveeenient.
1. A suspicious blast -- at the exact moment of
mooring with the cameras filming -- destroys Germany's Airship industry. // 2. It was FDR's Jewish Secretary of the
Interior, Harold Ickes, who would not permit helium exports to Germany. // 3. FDR with the mighty Ickes.
