Zeppelin LZ 2

The LZ 2 was experimental airship constructed by Luftschiffbau Zeppelin. Because of previous mistake made by Kübler in design of LZ 1, designer Ludwig Dürr made a progress in making a LZ 2 zeppelin and that put him to head the design of all subsequent Zeppelins. LZ 2 Zeppelin had only two flights.
