Flight in the 21st century
Eighty years ago, the mighty R100 and R101, designed to sail noiselessly across the skies were considered the future of executive travel. Sadly, following the Hindenburg disaster, airships were grounded. We are pleased to announce that, thanks to lottery funding , the airship dream is to be realised. The new airship is to be called, “The Queen Mary.” Thought that they had been destined to the history books? Well, the launch is set for Sunday, noon in Greenwich. “We will be taking bookings for the summer of 2013.” gushed Jenkinson, Airship Support Services Manager.
