Welcome the newest AIRCRAFT called AIRLANDER 10

Meet the largest aircraft that does not need a runway to land or take off. It is nicknamed the "flying bum" because of its bulbous front.

This monstrous aircraft finally took off for the very first time on Wednesday from the North of London.

The designer, Hybrid Air Vehicles says it is designed to use lesser fuel than the conventional airship but it can carry heavier loads and stay afloat for up to two weeks.
 The Airlander is 92 metres long and can travel for 148km/hour.

According to the designer, it has an engine made from that of Helicopter, Ship and Spaceship. It can also land on open fields, snow or even desert lands.
