April 13, 1931
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The "Graf Zepplin" was given a great welcome by the people of Jerusalem when it fled over the city at 11.15 this morning on its way back to Germany after its flight to Egypt. The airship almost touched the roof of the Jewish Agency headquarters opposite the Post Office. Thousands of Sabbath-making Jews cheered and shouted as the Zeppelin flew for about a quarter of an hour over the Jaffa Road district of Jerusalem.
