Soviet Zeppelins on Airmail Stamps
This series of stamps was issued in 1934. All appear to illustrate
This stamp illustrates the Airship "Pravda" emerging from the hangar.
The style of the auto is an additional clue to the era.
The rear/side view of this airship shows the large control surfaces.
This gives us a feel for boarding the airship. Must have been quite a sight when boarding.
With the mooring tower behind us, we are now in flight. This side view shows
two of the four engines propelling the airship.
This 30 Kopeck stamp is the final of the series. The Airship "Lenin" is illustrated in
blue over a map of the USSR, with what we assume is the route followed by the airship.
Can anyone provide me documentationi, postcards or web pointers on the topic of these
Soviet Zeppelins? How long were they in service?
