Synopsis: 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.
