Airlander 10 Gets Trashed... Again

'Broken in Two' -- This is the Airlander's Second Major Mishap

The Hybrid Air Vehicles HAV 304/Airlander 10 has been involved in yet another accident... this time when the massive inflatable broke loose from its moorings. The 302 foot airship had flown another test flight, Friday, and was moored through Saturday when something occurred breaking loose the vehicle and causing extensive damage to the airframe.

Two people were reported to have suffered minor injuries as the vehicle deflated automatically once its safety systems were engaged following its disconnection from the mooring mast. The was no attempt to fly the vehicle at the time of the accident and none had been scheduled following the previous days's excursions.

On Friday, the Airlander took off at 1511 GMT, landing just over an hour later at 1618 GMT at Cardington Airfield, in a flight that was described as, the "next phase of extended test flights."

The airship was damaged just over a year ago, in August of 2016, when the aircraft impacted the ground after its mooring lines became caught on power cables.
