  1. This is the second episode of Darkroom, our new series from producer Coleman Lowndes that digs into stories of the past, one photograph at a time.

    Happy Friday!

  2. no, no, no, the hindenburg didn't ignite

    it's because rob corddry pressed the self-destruct button on the ship

  3. That’s crazy, so it was bigger than a modern airplane? I can’t imagine something that huge flying, especially over the ocean. Wow.

  4. Humanity really doesn't learn.
    We built a gigantic ship, it sunk into the deepths of Atlantic Ocean.
    We built a gigantic airship, it crushed onto the ground.

  5. How do you hear about all those disasters so close to each other on the same damn new mode of transport and still have the guts to step foot in one.

  6. Airships didn't hold very many passengers. If the Hindenburg tragedy didn't happen, the need for something to carry many more passengers, like airplanes, would have caused the demise of the industry eventually.

  7. i was today years old when i learned airships are not just a steam punk thing.. they were real 😮 ::::::::::OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…

  8. If this was flown in modern time with a damn swastika on the fins! Sure it would’ve been controversial but for the reasons of history but wouldn’t be hydrogen due to the disaster

  9. Why do we think we have such a mastery over gravity. In the 20s they were flying in a floating bomb thousands of feet above the ground. Y'all trippin

  10. it was bound to have terrible problems you can't fly blimps in anything but perfect weather too much wind they are useless and helium is a finite resource and hydrogen well look what happened

  11. US: embargoes Helium so only they can use it

    Also US: makes airship out of Hydrogen anyways and blows it up
