Airlander 10: up close with the gigantic airship the US Army wanted
See the original posting on The Verge
An hours train ride away from London resides the worlds largest aircraft. Called the Airlander 10, its a 300-foot-long throwback to a bygone era when it was believed that airships and dirigibles would fill the skies and become the dominant means by which we moved goods and people around. Jet-fueled planes ended up fulfilling that ambition more adroitly, but the Airlander is the product of a team passionately convinced that airships still have a role to play in the modern world.
