Cardington, Howden, Bedfordshire, Air Ministry, York
R100 on her maiden flight in the morning of 16 December 1929. After departing Howden she flew slowly to York then set course for the Royal Airship Works at Cardington, Bedfordshire, cruising at around 50 mph (80 km/h) on four engines, and reached Cardington in two hours flight time. At the huge hangars at Cardington (some of which survive), two teams, the other led by the Air Ministry, competed to establish which was the better design in part via long demonstration flights.
