Hindenburg

The Hindenburg has always fascinated me. I stumbled upon this rather extensive video of the life and demise of the airship and decided to add some piano music to the otherwise silent film.

"The Hindenburg disaster occurred on May 6, 1937, in Manchester Township, New Jersey, United States. The German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at Naval Air Station Lakehurst. On board were 97 people (36 passengers and 61 crewmen); there were 36 fatalities (13 passengers and 22 crewmen, 1 worker on the ground)."
