Random Cutting - Germany's Commercial Airships (1934)

Click to Read
This really must have looked like the future of air travel in the early 1930’s with the luxury of ocean liners and the speed of aeroplanes of the time.
The final paragraph of this cutting taken from the pro-European multi-lingual paper The European Herald critising Britain for not jumping in is prophetic but in the wrong way. With the fatal crash of the Hindenburg airship in 1937 putting an end to that future, it looks like Britain was right to ‘wait and see’.
