`It burst into flames! ... It's burning, bursting into flames and it's - and it's falling on the mooring mast and ... this is terrible. This is one of the worst catastrophes in the world.'

On 6 May 1937 the pioneering Zeppelin Hindenburg, LZ-129, ended its career in flames when its hydrogen lifting gas ignited while landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey. But the airship had already completed sixty-two successful flights before this fateful day, catering to Nazi officials, socialites and the well heeled. Hindenburg offered cutting-edge transport technology with luxury and style, making it a spectacle to behold on both sides of the Atlantic, and was expected to be just the first of many giant passenger Zeppelins.

Three world-renowned experts have collaborated to create the definitive history of the Zeppelin Hindenburg, using stunning black-and-white and colour photographs, rare ephemera and detailed diagrams to highlight the sheer style of this mammoth lighter-than-air craft and explain the shocking disaster that signalled the end of airship travel.
