Airlander 10: World's longest aircraft flies for the first time since crash-landing

The world's longest aircraft has successfully flown for the first time since it crash-landed nine months ago.

The Airlander 10 - a combination of a plane and an airship - took off at 17:30 BST on Wednesday near its base in Cardington, Bedfordshire and landed safely at about 20:15.

The £25m aircraft nosedived during a test flight on 24 August.
