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"
