I don't get you. from the Wiki:

"R100 was built as part of a British governmet programme to develop airships to provide passenger and mail transport between Britain and the countries of the British Empire, including India, Australia and Canada.".

Should I now try to mend an apparently hurt British soul by claiming the "British airship effort" was indeed a great success like the Comet. Or could we just end this by agreeing that sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail.
