R80

From Graces Guide

Barnes Wallis invented a technique for creating the frame of the airship from standardized components fitted into a non-rectilinear framework. All tubing used was of a special spiral-wound type of superior strength, and all wiring colour-coded.

1921 This British rigid airship, with two-thirds the capacity of the R34, was completed at Barrow after being nearly 3 years "on the stocks"[1]
