As most of us know, Ocean County was the scene of one of the most spectacular disasters in aviation history when the Hindenburg burst into flames as it hovered above the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in 1937.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the disaster with a program that will be open to the public on the evening of Sunday, May 6th.

Navy Lakehurst Historical Society President Carl Jablonski stopped by our offices earlier this afternoon and brought with him some remarkable artifacts:

Here we have an original brochure that was handed out to every passenger, a letter that was on-board the zeppelin, a set of silverware that survived the crash, a piece of the actual blimp structure, a goblet that was recovered, as well as a pair of modern day postcards with original photos of the ship above New York City and moored at Lakehurst.

If you’d like more information on the 75th anniversary events, stop by the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society’s webpage, and stay tuned to 92.7 WOBM.
