The Hindenburg disaster took place on Thursday, May 6, 1937, as the German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire & was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station, which is located adjacent to the borough of Lakehurst, New Jersey. Of the 97 people on board (36 passengers, 61 crew), there were 35 fatalities, including one death among the ground crew. Amazing photo!
The "Bridge of Death". In the night of 26. April 1986 when reactor 4 exploded, the residents of pripyat heard the explosion and wanted to know what was going on, so they went to this bridge, where they could have a good look at the reactor. Some say, it was the most beautiful thing they have ever seen in their life. Unfortunately the wind was blowing towards them, carrying heavy dose of radioactivity with it. Almost everybody who stood on the bridge, died within the next two days.
