 Zeppelin LZ-8 Ersatz Deutschland / Type E
 
Excursion flights of several hours’ duration at 100 Marks per head proved popular to Germans and foreigners alike over the four years of operation.
 
The first airship destined for service was the LZ-7 Deutschland which, following a successful deliver flight, was wrecked. A replacement for the LZ-7 Deutschland, the 1910 LZ-8, or the Ersatz Deutschland, was put in hand.
