March 31 is the 75th anniversary of LZ-129 Hindenburg’s first flight across the Atlantic.

To commemorate the anniversary the Great Circle Mapper website has posted this chart and a description of the ship’s voyage between Germany and South America from March 31 to April 10, 1936.

It was thought that Adolf Hitler was aboard the Hindenburg for one flight. I believe there exists a one-day philatelic cover of this event…Truth or fiction? Thanks for any reply….

Hitler was never aboard any airship.
