The R101

Active selection in cart:
The R101. The great British airship was the aviation dream that became a nightmare. Yet, as enquiries showed after her fatal crash on her maiden flight to India, the whole enterprise had been botched from the beginning. And, to make things worse, the crew on that fatal flight knew from the start that things were very wrong. Original artwork for illustration on pp14–15 of Look and Learn issue no 525 (5 February 1972).
