I don't know either. But I watched some documentary about the Hindenburg disaster. The conclusion was that the stuff they painted on the surface of the dirigible was extremely flammable. I don't remember what the stuff was, but when you hear it, you wonder what the Germans were thinking. The hydrogen apparently is not what caused the Hindenburg to burn so hot and with such a death toll.
