Hindenburg Crash Site

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Hindenburg Crash Site

The LZ 129 Hindenburg airship was completed in 1936 and made 17 round trips across the Atlantic Ocean in that year. But on the fateful evening of May 6, 1937, the airship caught fire and crashed, killing 36 people. The cause of the fire is unknown. Voices of men shouting things such as “Away the lines, Christ be blessed, away the lines!” and “She’s afire!” have been heard outside the hangar, and apparitions of the Hindenburg and Navy personnel have been seen. The crash site is open for tours by appointment.

  1. Hello. I have a Historical Paranormal Research Team. We would like to investigate the Hindenburg Crash site. We would be respectful of the location and the people that persist . We would be proud to share any evidence we find. Thank Anthony

    • So I found from my friend he live by it and if u find a way on the base to explore they will shoot on sight. But there’s a hunted houses that got destroyed bc of it u can explore that without maybe getting shot at

  2. Without a doubt it is Haunted. I’ve visited the memorial site while passing by on Base. Driving up, I was fine. As soon as my vehicle stopped at close vicinity (you can drive right up to it), a heavy, horribly painful & sad feeling overwhelmed me. Without knowing anyone on board, I was crying so hard I couldn’t see in front of me! As soon as I pulled a few yards away, the sensation disappeared & so did the tears, amazingly as if it never happened. SUPER Creepy!!!
