May 6, 1937: The Hindenburg Disaster: The German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg burst into flames and was destroyed at 7:20 p.m. as it attempted to dock with its mooring mast at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in Manchester Township, New Jersey, following a trans-Atlantic voyage. Of the 97 people on board (36 passengers and 61 crewmen), there were 35 fatalities (13 passengers and 22 crewmen). One worker on the ground was also killed, raising the final death toll to 36. The disaster was the subject of spectacular newsreel coverage, photographs, and the recorded radio eyewitness report from the landing field by Herbert Morrison, who broke down amid the emotional impact and exclaimed, "Oh, the humanity!", which was broadcast on radio the next day. A variety of hypotheses have been put forward for both the cause of ignition and the initial fuel for the ensuing fire. The event shattered public confidence in the giant, passenger-carrying rigid airship and marked the abrupt end of the airship era.
