Interesting new footage shows the Hindenburg disaster in bright colors, which led to 63 cases near New Jersey 83 years after it exploded in the air.
More than 80 years after the Hindenburg disaster became one of the most infamous plane crashes in the world, Group AI has been used to change and add color to the original news coverage of the crash.
Neural Networks and Deep Learning shared the retouched footage on their YouTube channel and on their Instagram and Patron page in February.
They used Gigapixel AI, a standalone application that uses artificial intelligence to enhance images, and Deldify, an open source artificial intelligence tool for image enhancement.

The Colossus Airship, which has completed 63 successful flights, flew relatively easily as it prepared to anchor at Lakehurst Naval Station in New York City, New Jersey.
The LZ-129 Hindenburg (pictured) from Frankfurt, Germany, sailed with about 100 people to the Lakehurst Naval Station in New Jersey in May 1937.

Just as Hindenburg was about to land at Lakehurst, a naval station in New Jersey, a balloon burst into flames and fell 200 feet from the sky.
Suddenly, however, Hindenburg erupted into a terrible hell, with the flames burning through the hot air balloon and the dark smoke billowing.
The giant spaceship crashed into the grass 200 feet below the sky.
Color footage added to the intensity of the crash as the fire spread to the outside of Hindenburg and burned to the bone. Hindenburg eventually collapsed from heavy damage.
Radio journalist Herb Morrison arrived to report the Hindenburg landing, but when Hindenburg caught fire he shouted: “Oh, humanity!”
Color footage poured the intensity of the crash as flames crawled outside Hindenburg and burned to the bone.
Hindenburg eventually shattered itself as hell burned through its outer shell and into the balloon.

The U.S. Department of Commerce determined the cause of the accident was a hydrogen leak that lifted the balloon. It combined with air and caused a fire
Firefighters and emergency crews approached the “hot white twisted” steel while trying to rescue 36 passengers and 61 crew members.
History.com reported that 13 passengers, 21 crew members and a civilian were killed in the crash.
Many of the survivors sustained serious injuries and then underwent additional medical treatment for several months.
Last year, the last survivor of the Hindenburg tragedy died in his 90s.
Werner Gustav Donner died in November in Laconia, New Hampshire, and was docked at Lakehurst more than eight decades after being destroyed by German airstrikes.
Donner, who was only eight years old at the time of the accident, was on board the plane with his parents, brother and sister.
“He didn’t talk about it,” daughter Bernie Donner told the Associated Press on Friday, adding that years later her father took her to the Navy to visit, not just the Hindenburg Memorial.
When completed in 1936, the LZ 129 was the largest aircraft ever built by Hindenburg, a source of pride for the German Third Reich.
It was definitely a repressed memory. He lost his sister and lost his father.
In 2017, Dohner gave a rare interview to the Associated Press, recalling the moment when flames began to flash on top of a spaceship because hydrogen caused hell.
On May 3, 1937, a plane crash at Lakehurst Naval Air Force Base in New Jersey killed 13 passengers, 21 crew members and a civilian.
Dohner: “I remember lying on the floor, and my brother told me to get up and get out of there,” he recalls. Their mother asked the agent to accompany them to pick up her daughter from the burning debris.

Donner recalls: “Suddenly the air caught fire.
We were near the window, and my mother took my brother out. She grabbed me and fell backwards, then kicked me out.
I tried to pick up my sister, but she was too heavy and my mom decided to get out when the balloon was almost on the ground.
Donner added, “I remember falling to the ground, and my brother told me to get up and get out of there,” he recalls. Their mother joined them to pick up her daughter, who was carrying the burning debris.
He will remain in hospital for three months before leaving for another graft in New York City in August for a skin graft.

The U.S. Department of Commerce determined the cause of the accident was a hydrogen leak that lifted the balloon. It combined with air and caused a fire.
“The theory that brush discharge ignites such a mixture seems more likely,” the ministry report said.
Donner and his family were German citizens on their way to Mexico City, where their father was a pharmaceutical executive. The funeral of his father and sister took place there.
Born in Dormstadt, Germany, Dockner grew up in Mexico City. After his death in 1984 he went to the United States to work as an electrical engineer at General Electric. Worked in Ecuador and Mexico. In 1999 he retired from the New England Electric System in Westborough, Massachusetts.
Moved to parachute in Colorado in 2001. He and his wife, Elaine, 52, moved to Laconia in May 2018.
