Giant airship back in the air ‘this year’

[ February 4, 2017   //   ]

Airship developer HAV says that it hopes that its Airlander 10 airship – damaged after nosediving on landing during its second test flight in August last year – will fly again during 2017, the BBC reports. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-38853721) HAV hopes to develop the Airlander – the world’s longest aircraft, originally conceived by the US military, for a number of uses, including cargo transport. According to the report, the flight deck is now back in place after repairs and testing has begun inside a hangar at its Bedfordshire base, following which test flights will be able to resume.
