World's longest aircraft has collapsed

3 posts in this topic

The world's longest aircraft has collapsed to the ground less than 24 hours after a successful test flight.

The £25m Airlander 10 - a combination of a plane and an airship - appeared to "break in two" at its base in Cardington, Bedfordshire, an eyewitness told the BBC.

It then deflated and collapsed to the ground. One woman on the ground suffered minor injuries.

No worries, they will simply reinflate it and it will be back in the sky in no time.

It's filled with 1.3 million cubic feet of helium - enough to fill 15 Olympic swimming pools.
