R34 Airship Centenary Weekend, Pulham St Mary, Norfolk

A special weekend to commemorate the centenary of the first ever two-way flight over the Atlantic was held on 13 & 14 July 2019. The giant R34 airship landed at Pulham Airship Station, completing its journey from East Fortune in Scotland to Mineola, New York. Thirty crew, two carrier pigeons, a cat and a stowaway had spent a total of 183 hours in the air, broken by a three day stay in New York, where they were fêted for their achievement, even meeting President Woodrow Wilson.
