|On the 5th of October, 1930, a passenger airship crashed to the ground and burst into flame, killing almost everyone on board. It wasn’t the Hindenburg. Instead, this was the R101 – an experimental British airship on its first overseas voyage. The conception, creation and testing of the R101 had been a fraught process… and its tragic end would be the death knell of the British airship industry.
