Today, just one Zeppelin can be seen floating in the sky over the valley - the Airship Ventures Zeppelin NT, a mere 75m long and with room on board for just 12 people. But 80 years ago, the skies above America played host to no fewer than four majestic naval airships, the largest 200m long and carrying up to 75 crew members. Experience the birth of the mighty Zeppelin, its role in early arctic exploration, its first epic voyage around the world and its rise and subsequent fall as the darling of the US navy! Discover ambitious British plans for an Imperial Airship Scheme to dominate the colonies! Stories, photographs and tales of daring Zeppelin/biplane exploits! All this and more, in the most Zeppelin-filled five minutes you're ever likely to experience.
