Title: 1937 - Hindenburg Disaster 

 

About: Having travelled from Germany to America, the German airship 'Hindenberg' catches fire while attempting to dock.  35 people perished on the airship, and one member of the ground crew, but miraculously 62 of the passengers and crew survived. After more than 30 years of passenger travel on commercial zeppelins — in which tens of thousands of passengers flew over a million miles, on more than 2,000 flights, without a single injury — the era of the passenger airship came to an end in a few fiery minutes.
