Then Germany set up the world's first transatlantic air service for passengers, launching the Graf Zeppelin, the world's largest airship at the time. In 1930 it could fly you all the way from Germany to Brazil. You'd leave Friedrichshafen on Saturday night and arrive in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday morning.
