Product information "Zeppelin NT, 1st flight to Sweden - Document, Germany"
The receipt "First Zeppelin NT flight to Sweden" was franked with two individual stamps of 45 (C) each with a surcharge (20 cents) in favor of the Pestalozzi Children's Villages with magnificent photos of the Zeppelin NT. They were postmarked on April 15th, the day the first flight to Sweden took off. The authenticity of the receipt and the transport by airship is confirmed by the affixed on-board seal mark "Pictorial representation LZ 127‘ Graf Zeppelin ’over the port of Chicago / LZ 127 Chicago trip 1933 / on-board seal mark / Zeppelin NT 2013". This on-board seal stamp was provided with the imprint of the on-board stamp of the airship "D-LZFN / BODENSEE" and stamped with the date of transport, April 15, 2013. On the back of the letter we find the Swedish special arrival postmark with the date of the originally planned landing (April 19, 2013), also with a Zeppelin NT motif.
After the first measurement flights of the EU-wide measurement campaign "Pegasos" in November 2011 over Friedrichshafen, over Rotterdam in May and over Bologna in July 2012, the Pegasos-Zeppelin NT took off on April 15, 2013 to the north as planned. The first stage led in bright sunshine on April 15 at 9:00 a.m. from Friedrichshafen to the airfield in Mainz-Finthen, where the Zeppelin NT landed at around 3:00 p.m. The next stage started on April 16 at 9:40 a.m., via Bad Homburg, Marburg, west past Kassel to Hildesheim. A refueling stop was made for 30 minutes at around 12.15 p.m. Then the flight went straight on via Walsrode, Hamburg center, Norderstedt to Blankensee, the airport in Lübeck. The Zeppelin NT landed here at 6 p.m. Because of the strong wind, some of the measuring devices had to be removed from the gondola after landing in order to make the airship lighter, because further flights were only planned for Saturday due to rain and a lot of wind. As planned, the flight from Lübeck continued via Denmark to Sweden on Saturday, April 20 at 9.00 a.m. The route led via Scharbeutz, the island of Fehmarn, Copenhagen, the small island of Sankt Ibb to the Ljungbyhed airfield, where circling was performed many times at different heights in order to be able to compare the results of the measurements from the air with those on the ground. The letters from the first flight to Sweden were on board from Friedrichshafen to Ljungbyhed and were given the beautiful Swedish special confirmation stamp with the Zeppelin NT motif. On board were pilot Oliver Jäger and co-pilot Fritz Günther.
