Synopsis

The Hindenburg by Jane M. Bingham

The airship Hindenburg is the largest aircraft that has ever flown. It was almost as long as the Titanic and 13 stories high. It had airy promenades to walk along, a baby grand piano in the lounge, and a library. Its wealthy and important passengers relaxed in the smoking room and enjoyed luxury meals cooked on board. Yet the airship was kept in the sky by a dangerous gas that is explosive when mixed with air. It just needed one spark. Timelines, a glossary, ideas for research, and suggestions for future reading are included in this gripping read about a famous tragedy. This book includes firsthand accounts of that fatal journey.
