And in 1918, pilots from the HMS Furious unleashed their aerial bombardment from an aircraft carrier, attacking the German Zeppelin base at Tondern
One newspaper stated he "also took part in the Tondern
fight" which was a raid on July 19, 1918, on three German airship hangers at a base on the Danish coast.

Included are those important and curious milestones that occurred during World War I such as seaplane-versus-landplane design; the battle of Jutland; the decision to create a full-deck aircraft carrier; and, of course, the surprise raid on the Tondern
The Wright brothers made the first powered flights in 1903; the first experiment of flying an aircraft from a ship took place in 1910; and the first operational raid by aircraft launched from an aircraft carrier happened in 1918 (the Tondern
attack by HMS Furious).
