LONDON, August 24. /TASS/. The world's largest aircraft, the Airlander 10 airship, was damaged during a test flight after hitting a pole in Central England, Reuters reported Wednesday with reference to the aircraft's manufacturer.
The aircraft had a test flight on 17 August.
The 92-meter long aircraft was developed by Hybrid Air Vehicles for the US armed forces in 2009 but the contract was suspended due to budget cuts. The airship was supposed to be able to fly at an altitude of 4.9 km with a maximum speed of 150 km/h.
