    Probably the Zeppelin Hindenburg on one of its many trips to the United States in 1936. On its first trip to the United States in 1937, the ship caught fire and fell to the ground, killing 36 people. Dated by the swastikas on the tail fins (post 1933), the Hindenburg was the only Zeppelin to make transatlantic flights. This photo was taken from Muriel Genzlinger's personal photo collection, probably taken in Lakehurst, NJ.
