From a glass negative comes this new image of the last of the North Sea class airships, N.S.11. British naval airship historian, Brian Turpin has been enormously helpful in that, referring to the slightly obscured image code at the bottom left, he can determine that the photograph was taken at Kingsnorth airship station (where all N.S class airships were constructed) on Tuesday, 21 January 1919. According to the Daily Report the flight was a short one of 15 minutes, described as a mine sweeping experiment in towing, trailing a hemp rope 210 fathoms from the power units. The Captain was R. S. Montagu with Capt J. W. Havers as 2nd Officer. N.S.16 had been accepted into service 11 days before. Thanks again to Brian for generously providing information and insight on this new acquisition to our collection.
