LZ129 Hindenburg was intended as the first of many German airships built for passenger, freight, and mail service between Europe and North and South America. Although most famous for her fiery crash on May 6, 1937, Hindenburg had completed 62 successful flights before the ship’s hydrogen lifting gas ignited while landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Here three world-renowned Hindenburg experts have collaborated to create the definitive photographic history of the zeppelin. Gripping historical research is combined with a vivid selection of rare ephemera, rare photographs, and a fold-out section showcasing the ship's plans.
