The Hindenburg 75 years later: Memories time cannot erase


Hindenburg from Wikipedia

A sad note today marking the 75th anniversary of the Hindenburg crash in New Jersey.  Here is a great article from The Star-Ledger about the craft and the tragedy.

Hindenburg over Montreal

There is also a small Montreal aspect to the Hindenburg; in July of 1936 the craft made an unexpected pass over Montreal due to storms in New Jersey as reported in The Gazette. Imagine a plane making an “unexpected appearance” over a city in today’s air traffic control environment!!!
