Lakehurst Hangar No. 1 (Hindenburg Crash Site) - Real Haunted Place
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.”

I was stationed at Lakehurst in HS-15 Oct 71 to Nov 73. I was Enlisted Aircrew did ASW and SAR. One of my jobs was to run the Sonobouy Link Trainer on the roof of Hanger One. I rode up the antique elevator (Looked like the one in the Titanic movie) located in the corner behind the mock up flight deck. Rode to the top went half way down the catwalk go out an inspection hatch onto the roof that is where the trainer was in the middle of the roof. There where no watch standers in Hanger One. Which is strange because the Navy is big on Watch Standing. In the Front of HS-15 Watch Standers Log Book was an insert from Base Security which basically said if you hear or see anything in Hanger One under no circumstances are you to enter the building call Base Security and they will handle it. I found out why there where no Watch Standers later when I talked to an AG1 I meet in 74 who went to school in Hanger One and told me a lot about the hanger. I also meet a man who worked at Lakehurst at the time of the crash. If you want more info contact me zI can give you details.Posted 4/25/20

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
