The story of Cardington and the R101 is told in the title track. The Cardington sheds can still be seen near Bedford in the U.K. they are a monument to future and the past. In the 1920’s it was thought that airships would take over World travel but it was not to be. A monument to glorious failure and a place that still contains the spirit of a bygone age.
The two sheds at Cardington are still used. One as a film set and for rehearsals of major touring bands. The other is still in full Airship use with the mighty Airlander.
