On May 6, 1937, the hydrogen-fueled dirigible exploded as it was circling the central New Jersey plains. The memorial, which rests at the exact site of the explosion, was dedicated in 1987 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the disaster. Hangar Number One, where the giant airship was kept between flights, has been declared a National Historic Site and still remains on the edge of the landing area within sight of the memorial.
