Hindenburg reconstruction photo

 Stairs lead to an observation platform where you can see the Hindenburg replica's aluminum frame, the coated-fabric skin, and the space that contained the bags of hydrogen gas.

The Hindenburg was designed for helium gas, but the United States of America--which controlled the world's supply of helium--refused to sell the gas to Germany, forcing the Zeppelin company to rely on lighter but more flammable hydrogen.
