it's a plane, it's a blimp … it's the world's largest aircraft.
A massive airship dubbed the Air lander 10 recently completed a successful test flight, bringing the helium-filled behemoth one step closer to commercial use.
Though it looks like a massive blimp, the air lander combines technology from airplanes, helicopters and airships. It is designed to stay aloft at altitudes of up to 20,000 feet (6,100 meters) for up to five days when manned, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles, the company that built the aircraft. Hybrid Air Vehicles is a British manufacture of aircraft. These aircraft use both aerodynamics and lighter-than-air technology to generate lift. They make the aircraft stay afloat for several weeks.
There will also apply more passenger variants for the best flying experience!
Some questions- How many people can it hold? Can it go over seas as fast as airplanes? Does the blimp need to be directed from the inside?
The Airlander crashes setting the progress back. They are currently making a better prototype to make the blimp even weight amount the whole aircraft.
