Post subject: For the Zeppelin fans (Graf, not Led)....

So, last trip down to Argentina, I took a camera and grabbed this from the lobby. Graf Zeppelin over the Park Hotel (now a Marriott) on the parque in Buenos Aires. Pic isn't dated, but I think it's like '37 or '38.

A mighty fine hotel, I might add, if you like the classics. Wink
I try to cop the upper corner room on either side of little white smokestack because I have a view of the River Platte and the Parque.

I believe the captions reads "The Graf on your first voyage", whatever year that was...

intresting stuff, from what i see on net this is 1934. i found another intresting pic from that date with what looks like the same hotel, check it out, you knowing the area may confirm this.



The Graf-Zeppelin LZ-127 was a German hydrogen-filled civil airship which operated a passenger service between Friedrichshafen and Buenos Aires in the South Atlantic. The Graf-Zeppelin was 776 feet long and 100 feet in diameter and was powered by five Maybach engines providing a top speed of 80 mph.
oh theres another thing a video shot in 1934 of it flying there too, i'll see if i can dig it out.

Banshee...
I'd need another angle on that to know. While the hotel looks similar, it ain't that square and is bordered on one side by the parque. However, what passes for maybe a parque in that pic puts the river in the wrong place...and when I say river, BTW, the Rio de la Plata is more like 50km wide at that point (between B.A. and Uruguay).

Just can't tell from that pic and angle.

Be interested in whatever else you find. Love that city, too, BTW.

Wow, shows how much I know about Zeppelins.
I didn't know they went down to S.America.
How long would that trip have taken?

Yup Doug, on second look thats not the hotel (pity i coulda sold Marriott another pic for the hotel) lol, but intresting stuff never the less. seems most pictures available at that location come in at 1934 theres heaps of Zep sites on the net. Not sure on the flight time for that trip but i'm sure these things beat the liners of the day by a chunk....
