Product Description
When it went down in flames, the Hindenburg went down in history. The era of airship travel ended with a disastrous crash May 6, 1937. Sam Shere's photo of the Hindenburg in flames is one of the most famous news photographs ever taken. The entire episode - from first flash to destruction - took less than a minute. It happened so fast the Shere, who could feel the heat of the burning airship, had no time to raise his camera to his eye. His famous photo, which was the first ever to show a major air disaster as it happened, was literally shot from the hip.
