Truthblast Posted March 2 Share Posted March 2 It occurred to me while watching this: 1.) How did the Hindenburg make it all the way across the Atlantic intact, then suddenly go up in flames while landing in New York? 2) Why, like Titanic, did it also croak en route to NEW YORK specifically? 3) Did someone POWERFUL feel threatened by the FUTURE POTENTIAL of airships to change the world or commerce, war or travel? 4) Could Hindenburg have been shot at from afar or sabotaged from within? 5) How did we get stuck with airliners for decades which cannot land safely without a long landing strip at all? 6) Why is there no long-distance choice other than jet airliners today? Like an airship with jet-engines? 7) Why did nobody develop a much safer - non-flamable - airship in the decades that followed? 8) Disasters were common then and Titanic didn't stop better ships from being created. How did Hindenburg END the airship? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
