The world’s most infamous airship made an appearance at the 1936 games in Berlin, flying over the games’ opening ceremony (thankfully without incident). After it’s fly-by, it dropped air mail off at the Berlin airport that had been stamped with a special commemorative postmark. I wonder what those things are worth today.
Via the Smithsonian Postal Museum, where you can copy the menu served on board that day for your own Olympic party.
