0n May 6, 1937 airship LZ-129, the Hindenburg, was destroyed in a fire at NAS Lakehurst. Of the 97 people on board, 35 people died, and the destruction of the Hindenburg was widely publicized, and caused the public to lose confidence in the airship as a reliable form of transportation. The San Diego Air and Space Museum's Curatorial collection houses several artifacts that relate to the Hindenburg Airship Disaster that occurred in May of 1937. These artifacts were came from a variety of sources, but all were donated after our major fire in 1978.
