Love this photo. Zeppelins are pretty steam punk, no?
They are so retro it's easy to think so but they were cutting edge in scouting back when they were conceived and they even carried their own aircraft to scout for the scouts as it were or to defend them from other aircraft. It's just painful to think what wind shear could have/did to them. An unseen force so destructive and invisible that could not even be detected until the 1980s acting on such massive frames.
