Seconds From Disaster S02E12 The Hindenburg (Hindenburg Air Ship) HD

Description

The zeppelin LZ-129 Hindenburg approaches the Lakehurst Naval
Air Station for landing. Thunderstorms have added static
electricity to the zeppelin’s skin. It makes two sharp turns
as it approaches the air field, something that the Hindenburg
was not designed to do. A cable in one of the hydrogen cells
snaps and whiplashes the cell. When the landing ropes touch
the ground, they are slowly soaked by the light rain falling,
and a static spark ignites the hydrogen leak. The zeppelin
explodes into an inferno and crashes, killing 35 of the 97
people on board and one ground crew member.
