Yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the Hindenburg disaster (On this Day, The Times) in Lakehurst, N.J. at the Naval Air Station there.
I spent a lot time in Lakehurst over the years. At one point both sets of grandparents lived in a retirement village on the outskirts. Airships are still part of the local culture and one of the great hangers is still visible from NJ 70, the main road through town.
