The Ill-Starred R-101

A flying "hotel".  The remarkable passenger quarters in Britain's new giant airship "R101"
John G. Fuller The Airmen Who Would Not Die.  (Berkley, 1979, 1980).
According to Fuller's book, the cause of the airship's crash was finally revealed when a psychic contacted the spirits of the airmen who had died in the disaster.  No less an aviation authority than Charles H. Gibbs-Smith wrote a note endorsing Fuller's findings and their unusual source.  Pretty spooky, eh kids?
