World's largest aircraft

The world's longest aircraft called Airlander 10, which is as large as a football pitch and as high as six double decker buses, has been unveiled in Cardington, Bedfordshire.

The unique aerodynamic balloon-like shape of the Airlander 10 cost $100 million (£60m) to make and can fly at maximum speed of 92mph for five days straight, it carries around 10-tons of cargo and can land on water.

Measuring 302ft (92m) in length the new airship is about 60ft longer than the biggest airliners, the Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8.

The Airlander 10 will be used for surveillance and aid missions.
