Russian Empire airship Albatross
The airship “Albatross" was built on Izhorskij in 1912.
After one test flight in the hangar the "Albatross" burst. The dirigible was reassembled in Petersburg, Russia in 1913 and changed to the non-rigid "Albatross-II".


During the First World War the Albatross II made seven bombing patrols but the missions were never completed either because of low clouds, fog, or other reasons.
