Hindenburg Before First Test Flight

(Original Caption) Workmen formed cordon about the huge dirigible LZ-129 as it was dragged out of its hangar here for the first time on March 4th, for first test flight over Lake Constance. After a three-hour flight Dr. Hugo Eckener, who directed the construction of the huge airliner, declared her airworthy, and intimated that plans for exhaustive flights before its first shake-down cruise to Rio De Janeiro, would be greatly curtailed. Early in May, it is expected now, the ship will take to the air, with passengers and freight, and make its first trans-Atlantic flight, from Frankfurt-Am-Main to Rio De Janeiro, and later, during the summer, it will be placed in regular service between Frankfurt and Lakehurst, N.J. It will be named the Hindenburg.
