Airship makes successful first flight
The first flight of Airlander 10 - the airship that has been mooted for Middle East and African operations - has taken place in rural England.
It has been widely hailed as an innovation that will have a hugely positive impact on the world by providing low carbon aviation and brand new capabilities in the sky.
Chief Test Pilot Dave Burns said, “It was privilege to fly the Airlander for the first time and it flew wonderfully. I’m really excited about getting it airborne. It flew like a dream.”
