It was May 6th, 1937. Hundreds were gathered on the Lakehurst Naval Base anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Hindenburg, the large German Zeppelin that was set to make a triumphant landing following its first North American transatlantic journey. What happened turned into a tragedy that no one would ever forget.
On the 80th anniversary of one of the worst airship disasters in modern history, Micromedia Publications takes a look at the Hindenburg both before and after the tragedy. A very special thanks to the Lakehurst Historical Society for their support during the coverage as well as the Ocean County Historical Society.
