1934 Swissair Tuttlingen accident

The 1934 Swissair Tuttlingen accident occurred on 27 July 1934 when a Curtiss T-32 Condor II aircraft operated by Swissair crashed near Tuttlingen, Germany, while flying through a thunderstorm, killing all twelve people on board. This 1934 photograph shows Nelly Diener, the first air stewardess in Europe, standing in front of the aircraft in which she would lose her life that same year.
