The Future of Airships in the Royal Navy

The Future of Airships in the Royal Navy
Including a Preface Looking Towards 2029

by
Sub-Lieutenant Martin Flanagan RN


AirshipsRNThis university thesis was written while Martin Flanagan was studying for a degree in Systems Analysis and Management at The City University, London in 1983. At the time he had limited practical experience of maritime matters, but had read widely about the application of Royal Navy operations, both as part of naval general training at Dartmouth, and as part of the degree course at City University. The Falklands war took place over this period (1982), so the strengths and weaknesses of the Royal Navy were highlighted in the national press, and this informed the writing of the thesis. Of the many lessons identified, the resounding one to my eyes was the lack of airborne early warning to the fleet.

Airships appeared to be a suitable subject as a final thesis for the systems analysis degree because they represented an entire transport system with long endurance that could address some of the pressing needs of the Royal Navy at the time.

The original text has been reviewed and a completely new Preface looking towards airship related naval operations up to 2029 has been included in this valuable work which continues to be very relevant.

Includes an Introduction by Air Marshal Sir John Walker KCB, CBE, AFC, FRAeS, RAF (Ret'd)

Format: A4 soft cover - 88 pages. Profusely illustrated.
