Amazing new footage shows the Hindenburg catastrophe in strong colors when it erupted in mid-air and caused 63 near New Jersey.
More than 80 years after the Hindenburg crash, one of the world’s most infamous airplane failures, a group has used cash intelligence to improve and add color to the actual news story.
They used Gigapixel AI, the only application that uses artificial intelligence to enhance images, and an open-source artificial intelligence tool to enhance images.
In the video, the 804-foot-tall Zeppelin travels about 4,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from Frankfurt, Germany, on May 3, 1937.
The giant plane, which completed 63 successful voyages, floated in New York City with relative ease as it prepared to touch its dead mass at Lake Hearst, New Jersey’s naval station.
The LZ129 Hindenburg (pictured) traveled from Frankfurt, Germany, in May 1937 with about 100 people aboard Lakeharst, a naval station in New Jersey.

As Hindenburg was preparing to land at Lakehurst Naval Station in New Jersey, the plane exploded in flames and fell 200 feet from the sky.
But suddenly, Hindenburg erupted into a horrible hell that quickly ignited flames and blew up dark smoke.

Color footage captured the full extent of the accident when a fire broke out on the outskirts of Hindenburg and burned it with its bare bones. Eventually Hindenburg suffered a major setback.
Radio journalist Herb Morrison arrived to cover Hindenburg’s descent, but when Hindenburg caught fire, he famously exclaimed, “Oh humanity! ‘
Color footage captures the brief horror of the accident when a fire broke out on the outskirts of Hindenburg and burned it with its bare bones.
Hindenburg eventually collapsed on its own when hell burned most of its outer covering and the inside of the airship.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has determined that the accident was caused by a hydrogen leak that kept the air flowing. It mixed with the wind, caught fire
Firefighters and emergency crews arrived at the “punched, white hot” steel as they tried to rescue 36 passengers and 61 crew members.
History.com reports that 13 passengers, 21 crew members and a civilian were killed in the crash that day.
Many of the survivors suffered serious injuries and had to undergo additional medical treatment months later.
Just last year, the last survivor of the Hindenburg disaster died at the age of 90.
Werner Gustav Dohner died in November in Laconia, NH Hampshire, more than eight decades after a German plane crashed while docking at Lakehurst.
Dohener, who was just eight years old at the time of the crash, was on the airship with his parents and older brother and sister.
“He didn’t talk about it,” his son, Bernie Dohner, told the Associated Press on Friday. “His father took him to see the naval station many years later, but not the Hindenburg Memorial itself.”
By the time it was completed in 1936, the LZ129 Hindenburg was the largest aircraft ever built, and was the third largest in Germany.
“It simply came to our notice then. He lost his sister, he lost his father. ‘
In 2017, Dohner gave a rare interview to the Associated Press, recalling the moment when hydrogen from the top of the plane came in contact with air and started to ignite, extinguishing a fire.
A total of 13 passengers, 21 crew members and one civilian were killed that day in an accident at Lake Hurst, Naval Air Base, New Jersey, on May 3, 1937.
Dohner: ‘I remember lying on the ground, and my brother told me to get up and leave. His mother joined him and asked a trustee to take his daughter, whom he had rescued from the burning rubble.

“Suddenly, there was a fire in the air,” Dohener recalled.
‘We were near a window and my mother grabbed my brother and threw him out. He grabbed me and fell back and then threw me out, ‘he said.
“He tried to fetch my sister, but she was too heavy, and my mother decided to come out after Zeppelin was on the ground by then. ‘
Dohner added: ‘I remember lying on the ground, and my brother told me to get up and leave. ‘His mother joined him and asked a steward to take her daughter, whom he rescued from the burning ruin.
He will be hospitalized for three months before moving to another facility in New York City in August for skin grafts.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has determined that the accident was caused by a hydrogen leak that kept the air flowing. It mixed with the wind, caught fire.
The department’s report states that the theory that the brush discharge ignited such a mixture appears to be the most likely.
Dohner and his family – who are German citizens – were returning to Mexico City, where his father was a pharmaceutical technician. His father and sister were buried there.
Dohner was born in Drumstead, Germany, and grew up in Mexico City. In 1984, he moved to the United States at his own discretion and worked for General Electric as an electrical engineer. He also worked in Ecuador and Mexico. He retired from the New England Electric System in 1999 in Westbro, Massachusetts.
He moved to Parachute, Colorado in 2001. He and his wife of 52 years, Eileen, moved to Laconia in May 2018.
