The world’s longest aircraft – the Airlander 10 – has been granted permission to fly again, having undergone a crash landing in August which caused major damage to the flight deck.

Part airplane and part airship, the Airlander 10 measures an incredible 302 feet long, and cost $32.3 million dollars to build. Developed by Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), its eventual aim will be to carry out a range of services, including carrying passengers, delivering aid and providing surveillance and communications.

So how does the Airlander 10 compare with the aircraft you’re used to flying? Firstly, it weighs an incredible 44,100 lbs and has a total payload of 22,050 lbs. It can reach altitudes of 20,000 ft and has a maximum speed of 80 knots (148km/h).
