Hindenburg

Astonishingly, of the 97 people aboard the Hindenburg airship, 62 survived when it exploded. Nevertheless, the disaster ended air ship travel. Have you seen the quite horrific footage? It is hard to imagine how anyone survived.

  1. I remember hearing about this tragedy, but I didn't know there were survivors. There was a movie made about it too.

    1. Grace, the sheer speed of it burning was amazing. The reporter was quite distressed, but he needed to continue on reporting.
