25. The Hindenburg

“Oh the humanity” – the now infamous words spoken by commentator Herbert Morrison as he watched the famous zeppelin Hindenburg burst into flames and crash to the ground in New Jersey on May 6th, 1937. While Morrison’s speech has now become forever linked with the disaster, photographs of the incident helped convey just how spectacular the event was. The images of the giant airship bursting into flames as it pulled up to the mooring tower look like something from a 1950s sci-fi film.
