Not Scottish, but for @Huddersfield , though he's probably seen this.   Graf Zeppelin over Wembley 1930.

Just saw it on hushkit.net

 

Yes that’s a great picture. There’s quite a few of that incident including some taken from planes that followed it, plus some Pathe footage. If you could be a good chap though & avoid mentioning the final score back down on the ground 😟

Now was I not discreet in not mentioning the actual game, or was I just rubbing it in by dragging the whole sorry event out the archives?  :cheers3:

Except for those at the back, no one's paying any attention to it; every pair of eyes is fixed on the match.

Aye, once you've seen one Zeppelin. I'm now living a short walk from where R34 was built in Inchinnan. The first aircraft (a Zeppelin copy) to do an Atlantic return trip. Would have done 1st trip full-stop, but they bent it getting it out the hangar in the wind and a new fangled airplane beat it.... With a tail wind. Oanyhoo, reading about aeroplanes since football is off 😀

Anyone remember the stat for biggest crowds at simultaneous games at Cathkin & Hampden.   Must have been about 150,000, but can't remember where I read it.

Took another walk around Cathkin at the weekend, love a wee walk there from time to time!

I always go that way out of Hampden when I'm up. My Dad was a Third's fan.

And if you look in the top left hand corner of the aerial photo you can see part of the site of the 1st Hampden Park, the first purpose built football stadium in the world. It was built over by the railway in the 1880s and QPFC then moved to the 2nd Hampden, now known as Cathkin Park.
