Photo Comment

198 m (650 ft) long and powered by six 240-hp engines giving a maximum speed of 103 km/h (64 mph), LZ-113 flew bombing and recconnaissance missions in Word War I. This fascinating exhibit is the rear gondola. The airship could be flown from here in an emergency - note the steering wheel.
