Graf Zeppelin & Durant in Argentina

I don't remember where I found this, but it is a nice piece of history.
The title read, Graf Zeppelin arriving in Buenos Aires, 1934.
The Durant could be either a 1928 or 1929 Sedan.

Up until the recession of 2008, there was a modern day Zeppelin based in Mountain View, California (yes they still make them) that flew over the bay area daily. It was much bigger than the Goodyear Blimp.

I found an newsreel of that day in Argentina on Youtube.
