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.
