There's an app for that?

The Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen has released an iPhone/iPad app called "Wunderkammer" (they translate it as "Cabinet of Curiosities").

Wunderkammer is available for free in the iTunes App Store.

I can say, if you are a Zeppelin fan at all, at some point in your life you should make the visit to Friedrichshafen to see the museum, as well as to enjoy all the beauty and relaxation a trip to the Bodensee (Lake Constance) area provides. The museum includes a full scale 1:1 replica of the passenger section of the Hindenburg that takes up a vast part of the building which is worth the admission alone.

In the meantime, load this app and experience it from afar.

Helium Fill

We're nearing the end of the annual maintenance period and it is time for the ship to be filled once again with helium. We preserved about 5500 cubic meters via external storage bags, which will be reduced in volume further after removing impurities. A further 3-4000 cubic meters that have been delivered by truck will complete the fill.

Pinhole Inspection Day

Today is pinhole inspection day in the forward ballonet. We use bright lights inside the ballonet, lights out inside the main envelope, and look for stars of light.

Matthew sends this picture where you can see the ballonet and forward air blower.
