There are two things we know about the largest airship in the world. It looks like a bum, and it crashed on its second flight.

Airlander 10 – better known as ’The Flying Bum’ – ran aground when it accidentally tapped a telegraph pole before nose-diving into a field.

At almost the length of a football field, the airship can stay in the air for 5 days and is designed for communications, surveillance, and deliveries.
