The Story of Kansas

Today's Trivia (Jan. 29)

Wichita businessman Harold “Hal” Dick held pilot licenses in both free-balloon and blimp flight.

He was the only American to make 22 trans-Atlantic crossings in the passenger airships Hindenburg and Graf Zeppelin.

The Special Collections and University Archives at Wichita State University has a collection of some of Dick’s memorabilia, including correspondence to him from Goodyear president Paul Litchfield, postcards he mailed from aboard the airships to document his flights, and a boarding pass and passenger list from the Hindenburg dating May 6, 1936.

Exactly one year later to the day, the zeppelin crashed in New Jersey.
