Flight of the TITAN ~ the story of the R34 - Out Of Print

This product is currently sold out.

Airships generally had a bad press, but two (British) airships were successful - the well known R100 made a return Atlantic flight safely in 1930. But eleven years earlier the R34 had made the first east to west flight across the Atlantic, and was the first to make the round trip.

Based on crew diaries, technical reports, government files, flight logs and press coverage, this is the story not only of the 30-strong crew (plus a stowaway and a cat) who made the hazardous 100 hour voyage, but of the construction of a great if sadly forgotten triumph of British aviation.
