The first transatlantic flight

The airship flew over the ocean in four days. She was commanded by a famous pilot and engineer George "Lucky Breeze" Scott. R34 was not a passenger carrier, so extra accommodation had to be arranged by slinging hammocks in the keel walkway. A plate was welded to an engine exhaust pipe to allow for the preparation of hot food.
