Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Rare colour footage of the Graf Zeppelin II over Friedrichshafen in 1938, filmed by Goodyear Engineer Harold G. Dick. From the documentary "Hindenburg Disaster: Probable Cause." The documentary mistook this footage as color footage of the Hindenburg. This is the only known colour footage of a Zeppelin; the colour footage of the Hindenburg in various video sharing sites was hand-colourized in the 1960s.

MUSIC: Theme from the 1975 film "The Hindenburg"

My grandparents saw Graf Zeppelin in 1930, an unforgettable sight. I've got a photograph of Zeppelin, shot by my Grandpa from a window of his apartment.

Great find!

My father in law grew up in Union, New Jersey in the 30s and spoke of seeing the Hindenburg flying overhead, including on that last fateful trip. He said it was a sight to see.
