The US Flags throughout the re-enactment are all 50 state flags with 50 stars. The US had only 48 states at that time therefore the flags had only 48 stars. You can tell by the staggering offset of alternating rows of stars. The 48 star flag had a perfect rectangular alignment. See more »

Superb docudrama
25 October 2007 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best Hindenburg documentary out there. The reenactment is pretty good and the Hindenburg is animated so realistically.

Hindenburg: The Untold Story takes you into the investigation the disaster, which all of it seems interesting. Actual eyewitness testimonies were used, and tell the story of the Hindenburg's demise. Some facts have not been well-known, especially the "Untold Story" or "Secret" mentioned in the titles of the docudrama. Dr. Eckener had been offered a supply of helium which he declined in 1929. This affected him deeply when the Hindenburg exploded.

I know how recent research has suggested stuff about the outer skin being painted with rocket fuel - the film's researchers were probably aware of this. However, this theory has recently been rejected by various experts, explaining why it wasn't mentioned in the film.

Despite many incredible historic accuracies, Untold Story suffers from several historical errors. First of all, the Lakehurst Naval Airstation seems to be lush green grass and concrete! The Hindenburg crashes right on the concrete beside the grass! In reality the station was a sandy area.

However, this remains the best Hindenburg documentary I've watched so far.
