The flying machines that almost ruled the skies

Imagine the world being connected with a fleet of floating airships, larger than football fields … and dangerously flammable. Author S.C. Gwynne joins guest host Paige Phelps to discuss the zeppelins that were built to connect the British Empire in style and grace but had fatal flaws that were overlooked by the bombastic men who championed them. Gwynne’s book is “His Majesty’s Airship: The Life and Tragic Death of the World’s Largest Flying Machine.”
