Caption: Graf Zeppelin and Malygin in the Arctic. The German airship LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin carried out a polar flight over the Arctic from 24-31 July 1931, meeting with the Russian icebreaker Malygin on 25-27 July. The airship and icebreaker are at Tikhaya Bay, on Hooker Island, part of Franz Josef Land, an archipelago located high in the Arctic. The meeting with the icebreaker was in part to help fund the expedition, as thousands of items of souvenir mail were exchanged and then sold to collectors. The LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin was completed in 1928 and retired in 1937. The Malygin, launched in 1912, sunk in a storm in 1940.
