Saw many things through those years from homicide to a jet crash from open house and watched the hostages return and body bags. Loved it being there because I got to visit my family in Nuremberg.

Denise Perigo Neilson Rhein Main Airport and base has a long history. The small town outside the base, Zeppeleinheim was rightly named. Not until I left Rhein Main did I learn that the h u g e hangar building onbase ( brick ?) actually housed the Hindenburg. The photo of the Hindenburg, with Nazi swastika on the rudder, tied up to the hangar doors is eye-popping;regretfully I do not have a copy of that picture. ” On August 16, 1936, the LZ 129 Hindenburg was in her hangar at Rhein-Main airfield, with her crew making final preparations for her seventh westward flight across the North Atlantic. Now well into the sixth month of her operational life, the Hindenburg had already surpassed the expectations of her designers, her crew and, perhaps most of all, the passengers who flew aboard her enjoying first-class service on what was, at the time, the fastest mode of transportation across the ocean. ” The quote and photo is from this site:http://projektlz1 29.blogspot.com/2015_01_01_archive.html
