RedWing Tease Upcoming LZ129 Hindenburg for MSFS

History’s ill-fated but pioneering aircraft, the LZ129 Hindenburg, will soon be released in Microsoft Flight Simulator, after developer’s RedWing unveil a teaser trailer and say the airship is in ‘beta testing’.

More than three times the length of a Boeing 747, the German-built Hindenburg entered service in 1936, flying over the Atlantic Ocean carrying hundreds of passengers between Germany and the United States of America.

However, on May 6 1937 in New Jersey, tragedy struck as a fireball ripped the rear section of the airship, sending the monstrous aircraft crashing to the ground in front of hundreds of onlookers. The disaster killed 36 people and footage of the tragedy was captured in one of the most harrowing yet iconic pieces of reporting to date.

Writing on the their Discord server, the team wrote ‘we are in beta tests….so no delay for the moment… But “I can see the light..”‘. The team also revealed a number of screenshots with what they called ‘fake liveries’.

The 2-minute trailer includes a snapshot of the Hindenburg’s interior, a demonstration of the AI crew members in action and even the unique morse-code operator station.
