Zeppelin in the town

Zeppelin landing

Back in July 2004, one sunny day I went to balcony for short smoke break - only to notice that Zeppelin is about to land on nearby airfield Helsinki-Malmi. Camera was right at balcony door, so I lurked back, picked up camera and made this quick photo set. Only to learn later that this dirigible is very special one - this second one (and very first commercial) from Zeppelin NT series, made by the company which can be considered the successor of the companies founded by Ferdinand von Zeppelin. Quality is far from perfect, yet pictures are rare one.
