Some readers may remember this horrific event, which happened in 1937 over New Jersey in the United States of America. Airships and zeppelins were popular throughout the first half of the twentieth century, but this disaster, alongside a few others, saw the end of this era. The Hindenburg disaster may be the most well-known airship tragedy in Western history. The German zeppelin caught fire while it was trying to dock. Sadly, nearly half of those on board perished in the accident: 13 passengers, 22 crew and 1 ground worker. Nowadays, Airships and blimps are generally used more for aerial photography and advertising.
