Identification of crashed zeppelin?[edit]

In the Design and Development section, the editor wrote, "... the German Zeppelin L 33 was brought down on English soil. Despite the efforts of the crew to set it on fire, it was captured nearly intact, with engines in working order. For five months, the LZ 76 was carefully examined ...". Are "L 33" and "LZ 76" equivalent identifiers for the same airship? If not, which one is correct? Kelseymh (talk) 04:50, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

They are both valid identifiers for the same aircraft, LZ is the production number, L 33 the "tactical" number. See List of Zeppelins. Bit like serial number and registration number on aeroplanes. GraemeLeggett (talk) 07:35, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
