Zeppelin LZ 129 Hindenburg seen in The Story of Aviation.

The Hindenburg class was the last of such studies done and led to the two widest airships : the LZ 129 Hindenburg and LZ 130 Graf Zeppelin II which were the last of the great German rigid airships built by the Zeppelin Luftschiffbau during the period between the World Wars. The Hindenburg (named in honor of Paul von Hindenburg) ended in a disaster at Lakehurst killing 36 people. The second and final ship, which made just 30 flights over 11 months in 1938-39 before being scrapped in 1940, was the second zeppelin to carry the name "Graf Zeppelin" (after the Zeppelin LZ 127 ) and thus is often referred to as Graf Zeppelin II.

This page lists all films that feature the Hindenburg-class airship (LZ 129 Hindenburg and LZ 130 Graf Zeppelin).
