U.S.S. Akron at Goodyear Zeppelin Dock in Akron, Ohio. 1931. Although the Hindenburg is the most famous of airship disasters, it was not the worst. Over twice as many perished on the USS Akron in 1933 (73 of 76 on board) when the helium-filled U.S. Navy scout airship crashed at sea off the New Jersey coast four years before the Hindenburg disaster.
