What highly portentous air travel disaster occurred on October 5, 1930?

Answer: The crash of the R101 British airship on its maiden voyage in France, killing 48 of 56 passengers. As both the political backers of the airship program and the key designers were on board when it perished, the disaster ended British rigid airship development.
