The R101 crashes and burns in 1930.

A Freedom of Information request answer published yesterday inquired into the delay to airship R100

Information requested: You asked for “Any correspondence (letters, emails or otherwise) (a) received and (b) sent by Paul Wheelhouse regarding the delay to R100”.

An exemption under s.25(1) (information otherwise accessible) applies to the some of the information as it can be found online. However, in support of our duty to provide advice and assistance to the applicant we are able to provide two web links and associated documents:

‘NOOOO!!! It’s cursed. Just like Room 101, R101 means we’re all dead! DEAD I TELL YOU!’
