Inside The Hindenburg Disaster

On May 6th, 1937, The Hindenburg crashed after catching fire whilst attempting to dock in Lakehurst, N.J. The lead ship and pride of the German Zeppelin Airline Company, LZ 129, Hindenburg took just 34 seconds to be completely engulfed in flame and destroyed. Of the 97 passengers and crew aboard, 35 lost their lives in the incident, which was the first air disaster ever caught on film.

The ship had taken four and a half years, 14 miles of aluminum, 85 miles of steel wire, and $42 million to build. It was the largest aircraft ever built, and spent 14 months serving passengers across Europe, Africa, South America and the US before it met its fate. There are many theories about what happened to The Hindenburg, but all we can do in the modern day is seek to understand the craft and its demise, and draw our own conclusions.
