Still the coolest way to travel yet invented.
Any context behind this? What’s with the swastikas
Wow, I bet that thing really blew up the popularity of air travel.
On its final, fateful voyage, the Hindenburg took off from Frankfurt, Germany, on May 3, 1937. The trip was smooth, though headwinds slowed the crossing and delayed the estimated landing time by 12 hours. Bad weather awaited in New Jersey, where thunderstorms had raged all day. The Hindenburg approached Lakehurst, NJ just after 7 p.m. on May 6.
This looks like a photo from an alternate universe where the Axis won the war. Super cool
