The ropes tightened supportive.

Dan stability at high speeds.

You engineer and pilot.

of instructions. Very important.

"Turn the dial to S.."

Wind to starboard.

Turn around!

Do not look.

My name is Krge Merten.

What about you?


You know, Jennifer...

And saved my life.

I would like to invite to a party tonight.

It is in the U.S. Consulate

A big party for family

an American millionaire.

It's not really my style.

Of course I have to go well dressed.

Or maybe we can go to my house

where the clothes do not matter.

Are you thinking what I'm saying?

"To Jen with love. Dad."


Hey, stay there!

I can help bring the machine to the beach


Erika is furious because I have not

gone home to comfort my sister.

- Well?

- What is that?

An invitation.

- Took her to the beach?

- We need to get to...

Work for the Company Zeppelin.

Well, I work

and he has fun in the blimp...

reading magazines and crossword puzzles.

- Your invitation is not valid.

- Well, just a little wet.

- Is there a problem?

- No, we were dating.

- You can not do things right.

- Are you going, gentlemen?

- Dr. Eckener!

- We can not enter.

- I'm not surprised at all.

- The invitation is the problem.

Problem? Zeppelin designer

should be able to solve it.

Let me see.

These clumsy, silly,

hopeless knuckleheads...

- These are my guests.

- Sure, Dr. Eckener.

Enjoy the party.

Here come them.

Franzie is a cute girl,

but it scares me.

You want to travel at a height of thousands

of feet in a giant ball flammable gas

and you're afraid to spend the rest of

your life with the best girl in the world?

The rest of my life is a long time.

Ladies and gentlemen, Helen Van Zandt

Believe in the American Petroleum Chief

but apparently he must have...

More important things to do today.

His wife came in the room.

We are commemorating the first voyage of the

Hindenburg to the United States this year.

This is important for the company Zeppelin,

because America is a big market...

and more importantly the helium supplied

by the American Oil could sell it

if the stupid embargo on Germany

no exist.

Van Zandt Roosevelt is

trying to open the export...

and hope you have success and

to do a lot of money.

That's what this here.

Well I am other.

I leave the word to Helen Van Zandtin.

Thank you, Mr. Lehmann,

an unforgettable setting.

Wonderful to be here in Frankfurt.

My husband is Washington...

insisting Congress and the President

to end the trade embargo.

Due to the blockade of

our company must not...

sell helium to Zeppelin Company.

To tell the truth, has no future dirible


without nonflammable helium.

As we know, a little spark...

destroy the aircraft

with flammable hydrogen.

Fear is true due to hydrogen.

And it is this fear that sales of tickets

Zeppelin are so low.

Excuse me, Mrs. Van Vandt.

Let me support that Zeppelin

Company made many scientific...

to make sure a hydrogen

the alternative of a flammable helium.

Sure, Zeppelin's manager

knows more about science I.

I only know that Edward would

be happy to sell their helium .

I would be happy to buy it.

Thank you.

Thank you for coming, Ms. Van Zandt,

and his lovely daughter Jennifer.

Get up.

's Her.

- Who?

- The girl in the lake.

A girl?

She told me her name.

Van Zandt's.

American Oil Van Zandt ..

Rittenberg is accompanied by Fritz.

His father bought 30% of IG Farben.

It's a different society.

Forget that.

But I have an idea.

What about my sister?

Here we are again...

but this time you're wearing... nicely.

- Fritz Rittenberg.

- Merten Krge.

We are in the afternoon.

I was swimming naked in the lake...

when Mr. Krger flew and went straight to

machine into the water.

Sure, I had to save him.

Since then I have nothing to hide

Mr. Krger.

Apology to Jennifer for

her sense of humor.

You left something in the lake and

thought to be important to you.

Jennifer, forgive me.

Came a telegram from New York.

Excuse me.

Lehmann, Edward Van Zandt unfortunately

had a heart attack in the afternoon.

The doctors say he will

recover, but his wife...

wants to return as soon as possible.

Mrs. Van Zandt fly back to the Hindenburg


The flight is very important for the company.

Helen has a great influence on Edward...

and can turn against us

if something goes wrong.

I understand what I mean.


You left this in the lake.

I was lost.

Thank you.

I know that my father is sick.

I'm sorry.

The company has been for

my father all his life...

And because of the embargo, can

be on the verge of bankruptcy.

Mortified if you do not know this.

Not at all.

I have to go.

Good night.

I will not forget our meeting.

Do you already saw the old Hindenburg?

I would like to suggest some changes.

The one who designed the areas of crew

was probably drunk.

Am one of the designers of the Hindenburg.

- I did not know.

- Exactly. You know nothing.

- It's just a cabin boy. Close the mouth.

- Do not worry about Schmidt.

He spends alone with his radio...

day after day.

- Is it the first time in the crew?

- If, as a cabin boy now.

To get my license.

Maybe in 3 years as captain.

Do not you hear the captain.

O helmsman.

A few days on the Hindenburg,

and you fall for it.

Definitely majestic flying.

- My ship So caring, Jakob.

- Yes, sir.

- Send a telegram after landing.

- Promise?


- I wish you were not.

- Are only 10 days.

It will fly

and also a good opportunity.

Can you trust them?


Take a deep breath.

Mr. Van Zandt,

still not sure.

- Need more tests.

- I'll tell you what I need:

A succulent steak, whiskey

18 years and a good Cuban cigar.

No steak or whiskey for sinners


but brings Rittenberg

cigars on the Hindenburg.

- Rittenbergin Did you talk to?

- No, but Miss Van Zandt said...
