    The World’s Largest Aircraft Airlander-10 ...The Size Of A Stadium

    The world’s longest aircraft called Airlander 10, which is as large as a football pitch and as high as six double decker buses, is set to take its first test flight in a few days time.
    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. Some people say it has the shape of Reality star, Kim Kardashian’s Butt..

    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 can also stay floating, unmanned, for three weeks even with bullet holes in it was originally developed from 2009 for the US Army, which abandoned the project.

    A giant airship which bears a rather unfortunate resemblance to a human bottom, is causing a stir on Twitter as it prepares to make its first proper test flight.
    The Airlander 10, built by British aerospace firm Hybrid Air Vehicles, is due to make its maiden flight in the spring after tests last year successfully showed it was capable of getting off the ground.
    Yet despite its impressive size and design, which is hoped to reinvigorate interest in using airships, the vehicle is attracting more attention for its appearance.
