The Hindenburg


The Hindenberg was a zeppelin ferrying passengers across the atlantic. It carried over 100 people. It reached speeds of over 130km/h. It used flammable hydrogen as the lifting gas, instead of the more expensive but more safe helium. 30 lives were lost when it caught fire on May 6, 1937.
