It was first used as a passenger plane in 1909 by the first airline, Deutsche Luftschiffahrts-AG (DELAG).

The Comet type of jet aircraft as the first civilian jet aircraft operated. However, the accident occurred due to metal fatigue, which was still difficult to identify, making the development of jet aircraft somewhat hampered.
