Summary: Flight of Zeppelin LZ11 "Luise Viktoria" to rendezvous with the German merchantman SS Imperator, about 1913.
Description: The airship takes off from a hovering position just above the sea, filmed from below. It overflies other ships and approaches the Imperator. A message or package is winched up from the ship to the LZ11. The view from a gondola is seen as the airship returns to land, crossing the coast and coming to its base, where lines are thrown down and the groundcrew brings it in to rest.
