At the time of her construction in the late 1920s, His Majestys
Airship R101 was the largest flying object ever made as big
and luxurious as an ocean liner, a Titanic of the skies designed
to link the far-flung corners of the British Empire within days.
As Britain recovered from the horrors of the trenches, R101s
graceful lines, vast size and luxurious accommodation came to
represent the supreme self-confidence and hopes of a nation. But
that unclouded vision was fatally coloured by personal ambition,
heroism, weakness and political intrigue that touched many lives
and reached a terrible climax on a storm-lashed hillside in France
in the early hours of 5 October 1930.
This book is the first to tell her story through contemporary
photographs, and actual material used during her construction.
Atmospherically capturing the heady days of the 1920s, R101: A
Pictorial History has wide appeal to aviation enthusiasts, social
historians and anyone fascinated by a tale of an heroic dream
with a horrific end.
