Yes, Q-Ball, and if I recall, that entire section of the movie is in black and white, apparently because it was so heavily reliant on the original newsreel footage. I'm afraid they didn't have the budget or technology back then to re-create it in color.

As an independent and low-budget filmmaker myself, I'm there myself. I respect that.

The airport scenes early in the movie were the Citroën van was used were filmed at Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles. When I was little I also saw a scale model of the Hindenburg used for the flying scenes, of which DAF555 posted a few shots. It was huge, at least 4 meters (~13 feet) long and very detailed.

Apparently the large scale model used in the film was 25 feet long and is now on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.

I'd give anything to see the explosion sequence in color. Some of it is on the theatrical trailer on Starz.com.

Good news! Someone on YouTube took a crack at colourising the climax of the film using DeOldify and Adobe Premiere. It's not perfect but it's better than nothing.

I really enjoyed this movie. A great testament to its director, Robert Wise, to take newsreel footage of an event that only lasted 34-36 seconds, stretch it out to ten minutes, and make it belieavable. Some of the newsreel footage does seem quite theatrical, such as the name HINDENBERG painted on the side being engulfed by fire. Was also nice seeing William Atherton playing a character who ISNT an unlikable inconsiderate asshole, pardon my language. One oddity I did notice was that 98% of the chacracters are German, Including our lead played by the ever-talented George C. Scott, but no one attempts a German accent, possibly out of convenience for the actors. Robert Wise did want the entire film to be in black and white but the studio would only go so far to allow the climax to be in B&W and the Universal logo from 1936 to be used. However, you can still adjust your TVs colour settings to black and white if you want.
