As part of the opening ceremony of the 1936 Summer Olympic Games held in Berlin, Germany, the Hindenburg performs a low-level flyover. This is the historic Olympic Games where Jesse Owens, an African-American sprinter, won four gold medals as part of the U.S. Olympic Team -- as an enraged Adolf Hitler watched in disbelief.
