to the north of Paris, in October 1930, not olny did
the ensuing conflagration bring an end to the dreams
of an Imperial Airship service, it also extinguished
some of the most brilliant lights in the aviation
community at that time. The Airship Navigator is the
author's father, Earnest L. Johnston OBE AFC, who

Airships from the point of one man who flew them between
1916 and 1930 - and also contains an account of some
pioneering commercial aeroplane operations in which
he was involved in the formative years of 1923-27.

Johnson" also offers his own re-examination of
the original evidence relating to the loss of R101,
and of a computer study of the behviour of the airship
