Mallorca from the sky
German Public Television is filming with a zeppelin the unknown side of Mallorca. A team of 16 professionals will deal with the recordings, which also will include interviews with German residents on the island. The decision to use a zeppelin inflated with helium is not trivial because this vehicle is much quieter than a helicopter and more respectful with the environment. The zeppelin, 10 meters long, will move into a truck of 14 meters and will be handled by remote control.
The Zeppelin will tour the coast of Majorca, the Sierra de Tramuntana and also will record the interior of the island. With the material obtained, they will produce a documentary to be broadcast on ZDF television in two chapters at the end of August.
