World’s longest aircraft retires to make way for production models

HAV is in the midst of finding key suppliers, finalizing certifications and preparing to design the elements that "make the difference between a prototype and a product," according to McGlennan.

The announcement marks the end to a short and sometimes rough testing history for the 302-foot mix of airplane and airship. It flew just six times and was damaged during landing on its second flight. On another flight, the aircraft hurt a woman after it broke loose and automatically deflated its hull. However, the core functionality of Airlander 10 appeared to work as planned. As such, the work on a production model is more likely to focus on refinements and real-world use cases (such as cargo and passenger travel) than major overhauls.
