300ft-Long ‘Airship’ Unveiled In Britain Is The World’s Longest Aircraft

Undated handout photo issued by Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd of the world’s largest aircraft known as the HAV304 – part plane, part airship and part helicopter – which has been unveiled in the UK in all its 300ft (91m) long glory. The giant aircraft has been displayed at Cardington in Bedfordshire in the only hangar big enough to accommodate the 113ft (34m) wide and 85ft (26m) high monster. Created by Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd and first flown in the USA, the ultra-green HAV304 project has just received a £2.5 million grant from the UK Government. See PA story AIR Airship.

Pictured is the HAV304 arriving at Cardington in December. The aircraft is about 70 per cent more nvironmentally friendly than a cargo plane and doesn’t need a runway to take off.
