I Never Actually Saw This Before

The Wikipedia link is kind of interesting. In fact, I didn't know a thing about this *disaster*, really, until just now. It's one of those images that gets invoked all the time too.

Have seen this many times. An amazing clip and the emotional dimension is truly gripping.

Several years ago watched a documentary with my boys that explored the reason the accident happened. You could maybe get it at the library. Definitely worth a look. Seems the zeppelin was painted on the outside with a very flammable material (if my son remembers correctly) and it was just static electricity that set it off.
