Hanworth Air Park - 1932 - Graf Zeppelin D-LZ127

The German airship Graf Zeppelin D-LZ127 at Hanworth Air Park conducting sight-seeing flights over London. On 18 August 1931, the German airship Graf Zeppelin (D-LZ127) visited Hanworth. On 2 July 1932, it returned as part of a round-Britain tour, and next day operated paid flights over London. LZ127 was unique among all the commercial rigid airships in that it was the only one to exclusively use a gaseous fuel called Blaugas. Blaugas was a mixture of Propylene, Methane, Acetylene, Butylene and Hydrogen, which, being only 9% heavier than air, the use of Blaugas removed the problem of significant weight loss and trim as the fuel was used. Date: 1932
