The 302-feet-long craft was originally developed as part of a US Army project which was then abandoned in 2012
A British company has converted the aircraft - a cross between an airship and an aeroplane - for civilian use
It will fly to 4,000 feet at speeds of up to 46 mph in a series of six test flights above Cardington, Bedfordshire
The 'Flying Bum' can carry 48 passengers and is designed to be flown by remote control for up to three weeks

The world's largest aircraft, known fondly as the 'Flying Bum', left its hangar for the first time today.
The Airlander 10, which cost £25million to build over 10 years, is 92 metres long and pumped with a million cubic feet of helium.
The part-plane, part-airship left its hangar in Cardington, Bedfordshire at 4am today to commence a brief series of ground systems tests before its first flight later this month.

"...And can carry only 48 people." Next! This is what Nigerians commonly term Big for Nothing. undecided

Well one merit is that it is flown remotely and can stay in air for 3 weeks. That's for those who want to be in air endlessly looking at what? Clouds? If it were space exploration it would be better.

Only the US ARMY can waste millions of dollars on a practically irrelevant aircraft.


Next time leave the sky machines to the air force.

God created man and man made many inventions!

Psalms 106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

Proverbs 8:12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

Ecclesiastes 7:29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.

I pray we don't lose sight of the existence of God when we consider the great works of our hands as mortals!

While Nigeria MPs are busy padding budget for their personal consumption other MPs are putting research and technological development as paramount in their budgets, funding projects of 10 years to finality.

But here money for such projects are laundered into privates pockets and used to sponsor terrorist groups so that we end up chasing shadows, chasing Boko Haram while others are sky rocketing.

I support restructuring of Nigeria.
