Aug. 29, 1929: “Over the wastes of Siberia she soared like an astral wanderer, a marvel to lonely souls left far behind in the march of progress,” The Times wrote of the Graf Zeppelin, which completed its circumnavigation of the globe after 21 days, 7 hours and 26 minutes. After the voyage, the ship was bunked in a hangar in Lakehurst, N.J., while workers replenished the ship’s fuel and gas and prepared her for another voyage. The passengers disembarked, taking a commuter train back to New York. Photo: The New York Times
