There are various spellings (-berg, -burg) to the proper name Lindenburg. A notable individual with a similar name was Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974), an aviation pioneer who flew solo nonstop across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927. The name is also similar to Hindenburg, the German politician whose name was used for the ill-fated dirigible (the zeppelin Hindenburg).

How is the chemical reaction that occured when the Hindenburg erupted into a fire ball described?
The gas bag of the Hindenburg dirigible was filled with hydrogen gas. The reaction was, at least initially, combination of hydrogen with oxygen from the air to produce water and much heat. The heat eventually triggered other reactions, such as oxidation of the passengers. Reaction of other materials with oxygen to produce gaseous products is generally called "combustion".

They painted their symbol on the side of it to show that they were superior. and in dirigible (blimp) travel at the time they were one the best. They also had designs to use these airships as war-machines until technology improvements made aeroplanes were far superior in as bombers. At the time however airships had far greater range than planes.
