Just about a year ago (Feb. 2, 2012) I and a friend of mine flew on the Zeppelin NT that was owned by Airship Ventures in San Francisco. Unfortunately, the company has gone out of business due to financial problems. We flew on a one hour flight in San Diego and it was a most interesting experience. I can't say that it was exciting but it was definitely fascinating and I am glad I could experience what it is like to fly on an airship.

An interesting hypothesis, I have always been fascinated with the dirigables of the 30's. These things were huge! What a magnificent sight to see in the sky! That said, my research found that the Hindenberg was heavy aft approaching the mooring mast. Indeed this documentary shows the Hindenberg dropping ballast from the stern. My contention is that there could of been a leaking gas bag aft, hence the dropping of ballast aft on approach. At that point none of the landing lines had touched the ground to complete an electrical circuit. As far as the flame test depicted in the documentary I saw no huge increase in flame propogation as advertised in the hypothisis. My hypothisis is static electricity and a favorable flamable aiir content created by a leaking gas bag downed the Hindenberg. Sorry NG. Best regards,
