Flight with Zeppelin over Lake Constance

Last view before landing the Zeppelin

Last view before landing the Zeppelin 

A view out the side window of the Zeppelin shows one of the swiveling propellors which are necessary to stir the airship up and down and to the left and right.
The two forward propellors swivel to 120° and the aft one to 90°, and a fixed aft lateral propeller give a high level of manoeuverability, and enable smooth, quiet flight and impressive fuel economy. Some of the unique flight characteristics come from the swivelling propellers, like vertical take offs, precise landings, hovering over exact locations, turns on its axis and flying backwards.
