    Did anybody see the MythBusters episode where they (more or less) demonstrated that the problem with the Hindenburg was not the Hydrogen used for flotation, but the materials used to make the skin?

    Thank you all !

    I am glad you enjoy it.
    Now on to what happen to head chef and cook after the disaster.

    The head chef Xaver Maier.

    Maier stayed in the States long enough to testify before the US Commerce Department's Board of Inquiry on May 13th, exactly a week after the disaster. He sailed for Germany two days later on May 15th with the surviving members of his kitchen staff, as well as the surviving steward crew, onboard the steamship Europa. Maier survived the war, and thereafter continued to ply his trade at fine German hotels such as the Parc Hotel in Frankfurt.

    Xaver Maier passed away in the late 1990s

    Alfred Grozinger cook

    After Lakehurst, with Zeppelin operations quickly waning, Grözinger took on a job as ship's cook for a yacht owned by a Frankfurt cosmetics manufacturer, and after WW II (during which he served in the German military and was captured and placed in a POW camp) he toughed out some lean post-war years before opening his own restaurants. He later retired to suburban Friedrichshafen. In his later years he was a founding member of the Freundeskreis zur Förderung des Zeppelin-Museums (Friends of the Zeppelin Museum) in Friedrichshafen, and was interviewed a number of times for various Zeppelin documentaries, as he was one of the last remaining Zeppelin old-timers by the beginning of the 21st century.

    Just to get a idea of the size .

    The cooks story would make a good book.
