The world’s largest aircraft is on track for it’s maiden flight over Bedfordshire as more equipment is reattached to the helium- filled hull.

Hybrid Air Vehicle’s Airlander, housed in Shed 1 at Cardington, is being prepared to have its engines, fins and mission module attached this month.
The team have also got its state-of-the-art flight simulator up and running and invited TV presenter Frankie Vu, from CBBC’s Technobabble show, to undertake the first “flight” with in-house test pilot Dave Burns.
