It was indeed the fabric, and the nitrocellulose/aluminum powder/iron oxide dope (thermite with a fuse, so to speak). The Deutchland was immediately grounded and the entire covering removed and replaced before she flew again (on the South American route) for this very reason. Needless

Payload capacity is everything in a semi tractor. They're paying you to haul their freight, not your own vehicle weight. If you're carrying a ton of fuel and two tons of batteries, you're throwing away payload because total weight is limited by law. > On December 2, 2016 at 5:49 PM Curt
