A Conversation for The British Imperial Airship Scheme
Cap'n BK Started conversation Mar 2, 2003
The R34 wa built at Inchinnan, Renfrewshire, in Scotland. It was extremely successful, being the first aircraft of any kind to complete a double crossing of the Atlantic, in July 1919. It was because of this success that the US commissioned the R38, which was (as you say) a disaster. Sorry to be slightly pedantic, but I think you will find that aviation enthusiasts are very much so.

Dead right! Why I put R34 there only He above knows. Thanks for the correction.

Not being an aircraft enthusiast myself, could you clarify what needs correcting here? Is it an addition, or ... what?
