Graf Zeppelin, LZ 127, 1929 Tokyo - Los Angeles Flight Souvenir Folio

In 1929, the Graf Zeppelin, LZ-127, made a world flight, stopping at Friedrichshafen, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Although the Graf was not the first aircraft to circle the globe, it took only 21 days, 7 hours, 34 minutes, a new record for round-the-world travel by any means. Furthermore it carried a full passenger load over much previously uncharted land.
