C331 First in Flight Part III
Issue Date: July 7, 2011
On July 7, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued five new stamps comprising the third Issue in its ongoing five-part Firsts in Flight Series. After
World War I, the first dirigible airship Germany was allowed to build for her own use was the Graf Zeppelin. Her commander, Dr. Hugo Eckener, set out at once to prove her superior worth as well
as the feasibility and comfort of long-distance travel in the huge airships. His chosen method of proof: the first-ever trip around the world. The Graf Zeppelin began its amazing journey from
Lakehurst, New Jersey. Traveling at an average speed of 70 mph, 20 passengers and 41 crewmen comfortably dined on gourmet foods and fine wines above the barren wilderness and unfamiliar
landscapes of such places as Russia and Siberia. In a total of 12 days in the air, the Zeppelin covered a staggering 20,500 miles, landing once again in Lakehurst.
