Largest Aircraft in the World – level 2
For the first time, the world’s largest aircraft took to the skies. The Airliner 10 spent nearly two hours in the air and reached 914 metres.
This aircraft is massive – it is as long as a football pitch and as tall as six double-decker buses. It can fly for up to five days. It costs 25 million pounds to make and it can carry heavier loads than a jumbo jet, but it is quieter and eco-friendlier.
The makers, Hybrid Air Vehicles, believe that it is the future of aircraft, and that one day we'll be using them to get places.
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
