These three mint stamps were issued by the postal administration in North Korea on the subject of "100 Years of Zeppelin Airships" on February 5, 2002. The three stamps each show zeppelins. Catalog no. 4521-23

The 40 Chon stamp shows the Zeppelin LZ 1 and the assembly hall. On July 2, 1900, the first Zeppelin airship took off on its maiden voyage. There were five people and 350 kg of ballast on board. The first ride took 18 minutes. The height control was done by shifting a movable weight. LZ 1 was equipped with two Daimler engines with 16 hp each. The Zeppelin Company's funds were used up after further test drives on October 17 and 24.
The LZ 120 "Bodensee" can be seen on the 80 Chon stamp. Deutsche Luftschiffahrt AG (DELAG) had to cease its flight operations at the beginning of the First World War. Two small airships were built to enable operations again afterwards, the LZ 120 "Bodensee" and LZ 121 "Nordstern". LZ 120 started its maiden voyage on August 20, 1919. The airship was 120.8 m long and had a gas volume of 2,000 cubic meters. It was powered by four Maybach engines with 195 hp each. A top speed of 130 km / h could be achieved with it. To date it is the fastest passenger airship. It was the first zeppelin to be streamlined. The Versailles Treaty made it known that this airship had to be delivered to Italy. LZ 120 operated under the name "Esperia" until 1925. The first scheduled airship traffic was set up with the airship "Bodensee" between Friedrichshafen and Berlin (partly via Munich) during the general strike. At the time, this airship was the only secure postal connection between southern and northern Germany.
The Zeppelin NT is shown for 1.20 won. The Zeppelin NT is 75 m long, 19.5 m wide and 17.4 m high, and has a volume of 8,225 cubic meters. The Zeppelin NT can thus transport 1900 kg payload. It has three engines with 147 kW (200 hp) each. The maximum speed is approx. 125 km / h, the maximum range 900 km. The impact height is 2600 m above sea level. The maiden flight of the LZ N07 took place on September 18, 1997.
Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH received the type certificate for the Zeppelin NT on April 26, 2001. In Germany, more than 70 years after the end of the last Zeppelin passenger flights, the building of passenger airships was again permitted.
