Lakehurst Hangar No. 1 (Hindenburg Crash Site) - Real Lakehurst Haunt
It is said by many that the spirits of those killed in the crash remain at the site. Even the morning after, it is said “eyewitnesses could detect the horrible smell of burning flesh in the air” and some people were unaccounted for. According to “Weird NJ,” “some say that reverberations of the tragic event, of a paranormal nature, can still be felt around the Lakehurst Naval Base to this day – especially in Hangar No.1.” Many have reported hearing unnerving sounds of footsteps on the rafters along with other spooky sounds. Others have reported apparitions and voices yelling “She’s afire!” Most agree that the site has an overall ‘bad vibe’.
Today, Lakehurst Hangar No. 1 is used as a training facility for flight deck personnel, and there are several accounts of paranormal activity on the premises. The stories heard have also attracted investigation from ghost hunters like “SyFy’s “Ghost Hunters.”

While working at the Lakehurst Navel Air Station in the late 70's as a Department Of Defence police officer, I had the opportunity to go into hanger one around 1:00 in the morning. I remember hearing noise coming from the rafters above. I took the once one man elevator to the top of the inside of hanger 1 and walked across the small stairs to see what I could locate. I stopped half way across and thought I felt a hand on my shoulder. Nobody was the re. Time to leave! Who knows? A few weeks later I went back to hanger one and located one of the tunnels under a desk and went down inside. I followed it for awhile and soon I had a cold feeling around me. Some time later I read the tunnel was used as a morgue after the Hindenburg crashed because it was cool inside. Don't ever think the hanger isn't haunted in some way..Posted 7/19/18
