When people from all walks of life, from far corners of the earth, gather in Ocean County this weekend to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Hindenburg's fiery destruction in Lakehurst, it's another chapter in a perpetual tug-of-war between myth and reality.
As we mark three-quarters of a century since the German airship Hindenburg crashed and burned at Lakehurst Naval Air Station, the curators of the base's rich aviation history offer perspective of its meaning before and after the disaster.
What began as a routine run between Germany and New Jersey 75 years ago this Sunday ended as the most dramatic air disaster of its time in Lakehurst. The mighty airship Hindenburg disintegrated in a ball of flames, taking 35 lives with her.
