Recently, PlaneOddity posted a slew of old New York photos, all taken between the 1920s and 1960s. This one of the swastika-adorned Hindenburg zeppelin flying over Manhattan caught our eye. The Hindenburg flew over New York City on May 6th, 1937... just before meeting its fiery end in New Jersey (more video). Surprisingly, of the 97 souls onboard, 62 survived the crash (though many suffered serious injuries).
