We have to thank H.P.Stroehle a Pilot at Zeppelin for his announcement on the Airhip-list. He gave a little bit of an explanation on how to use the camera:
Normally, after getting into the webcam, clicking on the picture, you get into a waiting position, if there´s somebody else using the camera movement tool. On top of the picture you will see, which is your number in the waiting list. As soon as it´s your turn, you will have approx. 120 seconds to play with the camera yourself. If you Zoom in properly on the ship, you´ll be able to see quite some details.He continued in a second mail saying
Here´s Friday´s schedule:
Friday morning, at 08:00 hours, European Time ( 06:00 UTC or ZULU) you will see the Zeppelin leaving the hangar. We´ll be doing some engine checks and adjustment, since we changed the aft engine today.
We are planning to fly throughout the whole day. At approx. 14:20 local (12:20 UTC) we should be landing for a REFUEL and I´ll be taking over the afternoon shift.
We are planning to fly tomorrow until 20:30 (local), 18:30 UTC.
Have fun checking it out. I´ll be putting on my best smile into the cam.....:-)
If you Zoom in on -7 Vision Angle and -18 Pitch Angle with approximately 50% of ZOOM you will see the Dornier Float Plane standing in Front of our Hangar. This is the one that Iren Dornier flew around the world a few years ago.And this plane you also see in the picture above, since it is night in Germany and was already when I took the picture, it's quite dark but one can see the plane. So if you are now intereted, go to http://dvmail.zeppelin-nt.com:8080/lisa/index_e.html but make sure you have Java installed and activated. If you do not have it, the webcam can not be used, go to http://www.java.com to download and install the Java Runtime Environment.
