At 302 feet, the Airlander is larger than the longest B747 (by a good 50 feet). The plane / blimp hybrid has been nicknamed “They Flying Bum” across the UK and attempted to take its first flight on Sunday before being grounded by a technical glitch.
Well today, the aircraft took a short trip of a few minutes around the UK countryside in Bedfordshire…even its posterior made it off the ground! The Airlander will continue airworthiness tests before it’s evaluated for potential surveillance, communications, cargo, humanitarian and passenger missions.
