The British airship the R100 moored to its mast at Cardington in Bedfordshire. Built in Howden as part of the Imperial Airship Scheme, the R100 made its first flight in December 1929. Despite successfully crossing the Atlantic the following summer, it was broken up for scrap after the crash of the R101 airship in October 1930.
