[edit] Information

Nearly everyone has seen the vivid newsreel footage of the Hindenburg disaster, when Germany's pride, the greatest airship ever flown, burst into flames while attempting to land in New Jersey after a transatlantic crossing in 1937. And while the Hindenburg's fiery end could not have been more public, the cause of the disaster has always the subject of much speculation, with theories ranging from sabotage to the more mundane explanation of static electricity igniting the highly flammable hydrogen gas used to lift the 804-foot-long dirigible. In this captivating video from National Geographic, archival films tell the story of the age of airships, and gorgeously shot modern footage takes the viewer inside the enormous airship hangar, which still stands today and is used as a warehouse at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Interviews with Hindenburg crew members who survived the disaster provide vivid testimony about the airship's fiery demise, and a former NASA engineer who has long been fascinated by the Hindenburg provides intriguing conclusions about how the fire spread so quickly. The answers given by modern science indicate that overlooked features of the Hindenburg's construction contributed to its dramatic end, which also marked the end of the luxurious and amazing era of airship travel. --Robert J.
