Yokoso Japan - The First Zeppelin NT Sold To Japan

Tue Jun 22, 2004 9:01 pm

Hello Guys,

sunday, 13.06.04, was a lucky day for me.
Accidentally I was at the the airfield and saw this mighty airship with it`s japanese titles. Former this ship was registered as D-LZZR, and now it is
sold to Japan. Two days we had this ship here and tuesday, 15.06.04, the
ship took off for a long, long journey over Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, back to Germany (02.Juli in Munich), Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia and then home to Japan. Best regards and a good flight to his crew.

regards  Big thumbs up

Hello Na,

I believe, I`m not exactly sure, they built three of them.
One is flying at Friedrichshafen, one is on tour and the third is
in maitenance. But now they have only two, D-LZZR is now JA101Z.
Sure, silver looks pretty good, but this one in light grey looks good, too.
