World’s Largest Aircraft Crashes After Test Flight

The world’s largest aircraft crash-landed at the end of its second test flight on Wednesday. The 300-feet long Airlander 10 nosedived on its return to an airfield north of London after spending more than an hour and half in the air.

“The Airlander experienced a heavy landing and the front of the flight deck has sustained some damage which is currently being assessed,” Hybrid Air Vehicles, the British company behind the aircraft, said in a statement.

The company did not explain what caused the crash but said all planned tasks were completed during the flight. The pilots were unhurt, it added.
