This Incredible Vintage Aerial Film Shows Graf Zeppelin Over New York City in 1929

Uploaded to YouTube by Dutch historian, photographer, and videographer Michael Rogge, this vintage footage from 1929 shows the Graf Zeppelin flying over New York City. The footage includes some amazing aerial shots from within the aircraft, along with shots of the fanfare below. While the audio appears to have been added later, the film gives us a great peek at what the City looked like in 1929.

After an exhausting world tour over Berlin and Japan the airship returns via the west coast to New York where it received a big welcome and ticker parade.
