Airship Sheds      
Country: India Location: Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay)
1 Mast

A recently discovered map in the Public Records Office in Kew showing all the proposed Imperial Air Routes has uncovered some interesting unknown finds.

The map is dated "Air Routes 1931" but it is suspected that this is a future proposal of sites, probably issued around August September 1930, prior to the loss of the R101 and when many decision had been made regarding the next phase of the Imperial Airship Programme.


On of the locations which was shown was the proposal of a mast in Bombay. The mast is in a strategic location on the route down to Australia.

Nothing more is known of the proposed Bombay mast, however it is quite unlikely that this be built with the proximity of other proposed masts in the area.

However the mast could also service those airships travelling down from India, to Perth in Australia, as it sits on a geographic line directly south east connecting those locations.
