The Hindenburg

On May 6, 1937 at 19:25, the German Zeppelin LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was totally destroyed within a minute while attempting to dock with its mooring mast at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. Of the 97 people on board, 13 passengers and 22 crew-members were killed. One member of the ground crew also died, bringing the death toll to 36. The cause of the disaster is still uncertain. At the time, many thought the ship had been hit by lightning. Many still believe that the highly flammable hydrogen was the cause. Some German even cried foul play, suspecting sabotage intended to sully the reputation of the Nazi regime. Recently, NASA investigator Dr. Addison Bain, however, has shown that the highly combustible varnish treating the fabric on the outside of the vessel most likely caused the tragedy [16, 231, 233].
