Herald Sun - Switched On - - Friday -

AS its long ti­tle sug­gests, this se­ries in­ves­ti­gates the most fa­mous un­ex­plained events in re­cent memory and this week it’s the Hin­den­burg dis­as­ter of 1937 (pic­tured). The Ger­man air­ship car­ry­ing 97 pas­sen­gers from Frank­furt to the US caught fire in the air above New Jer­sey. It took just 32 sec­onds for a small flame to en­gulf the ship and send it crash­ing to the ground, killing 37 peo­ple.
