Harold G. Dick

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harold Gustav "Hal" Dick (January 19, 1907 – September 3, 1997) was an American mechanical engineer employed by Goodyear, who flew on almost all of the Hindenburg flights. He was called to the UK for a meeting before the last flight of the Hindenburg and was not aboard during the disaster. Dick earned his balloon and dirigible pilot licenses in 1930, from Orville Wright.[1]

Harold Dick was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts, and died in Wichita, Kansas, at the age of 90.
