The Hindenburg

Paul Kafasis:

This week marks the 75th anniversary of the Hindenburg disaster, a wreck perhaps best known for introducing the phrase “Oh, the humanity” to our lexicon. While chatting with my pal Marco a while back, I realized I knew very little of the real story. Having cured my own ignorance, I now seek to pass on some interesting notes.

    When journalist were actual people. Maybe someday a real reporter will play at being human once in while.

    You can also notice the 1936 Olympic Circles between the Hindenburg and DL-Z129. Also quite fasinating are the color photographs of the Hindenburg with its Nazi logo’s flying over New York. I think this makes for the WWII trifecta Dalrymple.
