Get ready … as a skilled mechanic is 1930s Germany, you are thrilled to be offered a job on the most magnificent airship ever built. You're certainly not going to forget your flight on the Hindenburg.

The Heat Is on!

Top Tips from Experts:

Beware of fire-the huge airship is full of highly flammable gas.

Beware of storms and lightning-storm clouds contain electricity, and electricity makes dangerous sparks.

Wrap up warm-airship travel is very comfortable in the passengers' quarters, but not where you work.

If the worst happens, don't panic. Those who keep clam are most likely to survive.
