NEW JER­SEY, 1937

History Revealed - - PHOTO FINISH -

Dur­ing the land­ing of its se­cond transat­lantic cross­ing, the Ger­man Zep­pelin air­ship Hin­den­burg – the largest air­craft ever built – bursts into flames. Thirty-five of the 97 peo­ple on board are killed, as is a mem­ber of the ground crew. The dis­as­ter at Lake­hurst is blamed on a gas leak, although ru­mours of anti-Nazi sab­o­tage soon spread.
