This film is a compendium of the facts and fiction of the events leading up to the disaster. For dramatic effect, Sabotage was chosen as the cause, rather than electricity lashing out at a couple of tons of hydrogen.
Col. Ritter (George C. Scott) is called up by the German high command to settle concerns that a sabotage conspiracy is at work on blowing up the Hindenburg at some point in its highly reported voyage to New Jersey in the United States. Ritter moves into action by monitoring all the passengers as they board the lighter-than-air craft taking the opportunity to find out specifics about each one and reasons for traveling. After the craft is afloat, Ritter continues to look over the mechanics and the servicing of the craft doggedly determined to quell any possible problems. After determining that there is indeed a plot afoot to destroy the aircraft, Ritter responds by trying to get the craft to land and get the passengers off safely.
