The Hindenburg Disasterby Aaron Feigenbaum
The Hindenberg hovered in the sky over Lakehurst, New Jersey. Five hundred feet (152 m) below, a large group waited to greet the passengers. Newspaper reporters scribbled notes. Photographers snapped pictures. The crowd of people had gathered to watch the landing of the world's biggest airship. Instead, they saw the Hindenburg burst into flames and begin to fall. Passengers jumped out of the ball of fire while burning parts of the ship flew everywhere. The terrible event was captured by the voice of a stunned radio announcer. It would become an unforgettable broadcast-and one of the most famous disasters in the history of air travel.
