External Link: Zeppelin Chess

Pieces move as in orthodox chess, with the exception of the additional piece, the "Zeppelin". The Zeppelin flies to any empty square orthogonally, ie. the rook-directions. It captures an enemy piece by landing immediately beyond its victim. The Zeppelin's value corresponds to a bishop (preliminary estimate). The Zeppelin piece is a weaker version of the Airplane, which was invented by R. W. Schmittberger for his Airplane Chess, 1981.

A Zillions implementation and more information is here.
