The age of flight—or at least the beginning of what it became. The Hindenburg Zeppelin fascinated the world with the enormity of its sheer size and the realization of commercial flight. The deluxe Hindenburg interior had smoking lounges, mess halls, bathrooms, cabins and a restaurant. It soon came to symbolize German achievement in engineering and design. Notoriously, a tragic accident on May 6, 1937 caused the Hindenburg to explode into flames killing 35 of its 97 passengers and crew. Much controversy and conspiracy theories have existed since; blame encompasses everything from sabotage to engine failure to St. Elmo’s fire, and initial cause of the crash is still in debate.
