The world's longest aircraft completed its maiden on Wednesday as it took off from Bedford, 96 kilometers north of London. Airlander 10, part plane and part airship, took off at 7:40 pm local time from the Cardington Airfield, spending nearly two hours in the sky. Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), the British company that funded the aircraft, said the technology combines the best characteristics of a fixed wing aircraft and a helicopter to create a new breed of hyper-efficient aircrafts.
