    The Mediterranean was one of four giant rigid airships that owned the France. built in Germany as passenger airship, it then bore the name of LZ 121 "Nordstern". First flight June 8, 1921 and arrived in France in respect of war damages the 13th of the same month.


    In France it received the F-ADDM registration and the name of "Mediterranean". Paid to the Navy on 22 April 1922. He was grounded after the disappearance of the "Diksmuide". Ban lifted, he flew from October 1924 to August 1926.


    He was then "deconstructed" and the tip kept on the basis of Cuers. Transferred to 1996 to the aeroclub, she eventually arrive at le Bourget on May 28, 2010
