All aboard The Flying Bum.
The Airlander 10 has been given that nickname after images of a prototype were released, and comparisons to a gigantic rear end were made.
Much more than just a giant, white, airborne booty, the Airlander 10 airship is potentially the future of travel. Relying on a giant balloon of helium to get it up and into the sky means far less emissions than your regular plane, making an airship a much greener option.
The world’s largest aircraft can also go quite low and slow, and quietly too, making the opportunities for the Airship endless: imagine a safari cruising right above giraffes, elephants and the like without spooking them.
In fact, it’s probably a lot quieter than a lot of other Gluteus Maximus’ we’ve come across, and it comes with a bar and bedrooms and a James Bond-like lounge.
Limited flights may be available in the coming years, but it isn’t expected to be in regular service until 2025. But when it is, it could potentially revolutionise short-haul travel. Watch this space.
