Stenny Green is an expert on the Hindenburg. He knows everything there is to know about blimps and dirigibles. He sneaks out of his house and watches as the Hindenburg prepares to dock at the naval station by his house. He watches, horrified as it explodes and people begin jumping from the burning ship. Stenny helps with the rescue and sees the pilot of the Hindenburg who is gravely injured.

This is a great adventure story and conveys a wealth of information without reading like a textbook.
