Utterly iconic airships- huge, visually stunning, yet so very explosive.
Can you imagine the trouble on traveling these days, never certain to arrive let alone when or how…
My grandfather got to see the Hindenburg fly over his town (Worcester, MA) when he was a boy. He told me the school teachers planned ahead to get the class outside and had them look at the sky for the airship. It’s pretty crazy to think he got to see the thing.
I was looking at that picture wondering where all the people would go and found this site which is pretty interesting!
So I’m curious because of the Nazi flag. How was this zeplin allowed to fly over the US like this with those on it? We’re we still like nah fuck the war at this point?
Here are some historic photos taken before, during and after the disaster in 1937.
