I never heard this song before yesterday. Been a fan of this band since the early 80's. Been so busy these past few years I didnt hear they had put out a record a few years ago. Fantastic song.
A good history lesson about the R101. A British airship disaster that predated and was worse than the Hindenburg. The video is fan made with lyrics and additional facts.
The singer had throat cancer when he recorded this. He wrote it as well.
