Condition is very good to excellent w/a minor thin on flap. We don't believe the Graf Zeppelin landed in Cleveland since it was on its way to Lakehurst during its Around the World flight. It's unclear if the Los Angeles landed as well. Great document of this exciting and eventful period of aviation history.
