Zeppelin L4 (LZ-27) crashed at Denmark, fuel shortage

Today in history: On 17 Februar 1915, German naval airship L4 crashed at the shore near Blaavandshuk, Denmark. The airship was on the return flight of a scouting mission along the Norwegian coast when they were facing strong head winds and a severe snow storm. The shortage of fuel finally forced the crew to an emergency landing. Four crew members died, the airship was damaged beyond repair.

Remains of L4 at Denmark.
