1983This is the unique original Watercolour painting by Alberto Salinas.
Two boards featuring the LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin, which was a German-built and operated passenger-carrying hydrogen-filled rigid airship (aka 'blimp') that operated commercially from 1928 to 1937. It was named after the German pioneer of airships, Ferdinand von Zeppelin, who was a Graf or Count in the German nobility.
During its operating life, the airship made 590 flights covering more than a million miles. It was designed to be operated by a crew of 36 officers and men. Since the two panels are on two separate boards it may be necessary to have them mounted together.
