The world finally developed the largest aircraft. It is a hybrid. An airship and an aeroplane combined. It  is only weeks away from its maiden flight, as per Sky News .

The Airlander 10 was originally developed for the US Army back in 2009, but re-imagined for commercial use when the project had been abandoned.

Unlike an airplane, the Airlander 10 :-
  • does not need a runway and can land on most surfaces, including water.
  • carry up to 10 tons, 
  • transport 48 passengers and 
  • fly continuously for five days at 80 knots (92mph), 


making it ideal to transport large amount of men and material to reach difficult places.
