Graf Zeppelin EPW038817 Featured Aviation Print

Graf Zeppelin EPW038817

The Graf Zeppelin moored at Hanworth Aerodrome, London Air Park in July 1932. This was her third and final visit to the UK after a flight over London in 1930 and a 24-hour round-Britain passenger tour in August 1931. Once again she took a passenger tour around Britain in 24 hours before returning to Hanworth. Dr Hugo Eckener, the head of the Zeppelin passenger company, took personal charge of the Graf Zeppelin on several record breaking flights as well as using it as a public relations tool and an attraction drawing large crowds. From a copy negative. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)

De Havilland DH9s flying in formation. From a copy negative made in 1923. Designed in 1916 by Airco, it first saw action with the Royal Flying Corps over the Western Front in 1917, but the aircraft went out of service with the RAF in 1920. Large numbers were subsequently exported for use by Commonwealth Air Forces or were adapted for use by civilian air transport companies. Some adaptations remained in use until 1936.

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121 Featured Aviation Print

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis coming in to land at Croydon Aerodrome, 29th May 1927 having flown in from Brussels. Lindbergh had made his record-breaking single-handed flight across the Atlantic only nine days before. After landing he made an additional five minute demonstration flight circling the aerodrome. According to Lindbergh's flight log: "Took off before end of landing roll to avoid injuring crowd, which broke through police lines. Stabilizer damaged by pressure of crowd. Repaired at Croydon". This aerial photograph is well positioned to show the crowds watching his descent. From Croydon Lindbergh flew to Gosport where the Spirit of St Louis was disassembled and packed aboard a US cruiser for its trip home to the United States. From a copy negative.
