We, at Cole's Aircraft, have been blessed to acquire one of the world's largest and most diverse collections of authenticated LZ 129 Hindenburg airship relics, including the largest duraluminum girder section in private hands. Ron Cole has created his third Hindenburg composition, in September 2021, to pair with this limited release of 1 x 1-inch pieces of Hindenburg fabric that was taken from the Lakehurst crash site in 1936.
These silver doped pieces of history are unique. Designed and manufactured by Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH, aluminum powder was mixed into the dope to help promote heat distribution across the surface of the material. Many speculate the role this material had in the destruction of the Hindenburg, as aluminum powder is an incendiary compound (today, used in road flares, for example). This material, from the Hindenburg, is yours to own and preserve, with Ron's original artwork, available here for a limited time.
Signed & numbered by the artist. 13 x 19-inches, framed and ready to hang.
