R100 first flew in December 1929. On July 29, 1930, R100 departed England for Canada and reached its mooring mast at the St-Hubert, Quebec Airport (outside Montreal) in 78 hours, where the airship remained for 12 days with over 100,000 people visiting the airship each day. It also made a 24-hour passenger-carrying flight to Ottawa, Toronto, and Niagara Falls while in Canada. The airship departed on its return flight on 13 August, reaching Cardington England after a 57½ hour flight. Following the crash of R101 in October 1930 the Imperial Airship Scheme was terminated and R100 was broken up for scrap.
