Transatlantic Airships : An Illustrated History, Hardback Book

Transatlantic Airships : An Illustrated History Hardback


In "Transatlantic Airships", John Christopher recounts the fascinating story of the lighter-than-air 'pond hoppers' from the earliest schemes and bold pioneering flights, including the triumphant double-crossing by the R34.

The book goes on to describe the rise of the Zeppelins and the ambitious British scheme to connect its far-flung Empire, the US Navy's lighter-than-air craft and the incredible post-war proposals for colossal atomic-powered leviathans.

It is a story of fantastic visionaries, incredible flying machines, great moments of triumph and, ultimately, of spectacular disaster.
