The world’s largest aircraft, the Airlander, has been brought out of its hangar for the first time in the UK.
It is 92m long, 43.5m wide and 26m high – about the same size as a football pitch. The machine is about 18m longer than the biggest passenger jets!
The aircraft passed with just a few feet to spare through the hangar doors and was then towed for 30 minutes.
Tests on its engines, generators and systems were completed last week, while ground systems tests will now be carried out before it takes to the skies.
The date of its maiden flight has yet to be announced.
It is hoped the aircraft could be used for surveillance, communications, transporting cargo, humanitarian missions and passenger travel.
