1933 : Graf Zeppelin Flies Over Detroit

October 26, 2018 all-day

Photo showing the Graf Zeppelin flying over Detroit on October 26, 1933. In view are the downtown skyline, looking east with the Detroit River and Belle Isle in the background.

Was it part of a Nazi plot to photograph bombing targets before World War II?   Probably not.
