British engineers say their Airlander 10 airship, once owned by the US Army, could revolutionise aviation, particularly in the area of disaster relief. The 302-foot long aircraft is powered by inert helium and can carry huge payloads of cargo. All it needs is a level surface on which to land. Jim Drury went to see it. Credit to Reuters.
