R80 was completed in 1920 and was commissioned into the RAF in October 1920. She was then flown to RNAS Howden and laid up in 1921. She was re-commissioned to train US personnel to fly rigid airships who were to take over the R38 for the US Navy. After eight flights in this role, the crew members transferred to R38 but R38 crashed over into the Humber before she could be taken to the US and R80 was decommissioned after this tragic event.
