The Hindenburg flies over Baltimore, 1936

“A Flight on the Hindenburg: One Passenger’s Account” (

“A test of the air proved that the landing might be bumpy, as a gusty wind was blowing from a bad quarter. Our good luck. Word was sent down that we would not land and away we flew through the clear sky of a bright summer day. Down the New Jersey coast-a circle around Atlantic City thence to Cape May- West across Maryland and the waters of the Chesapeake to Annapolis and on to Washington. The Nation’s capitol never looked more beautiful as we circled twice around it and then headed North toward Baltimore.”
