The world's largest airship has emerged from its hangar in Bedfordshire and will take to the skies again soon.
The Airlander 10 has undergone extensive repairs after crash-landing on only its second ever flight from Cardington Airfield.
Hybrid Air Vehicles said it was carrying out a number of final tests but would soon become a familiar sight over Bedfordshire and the rest of the UK.
It has taken seven months to repair the damage to the front of the aircraft following its crash in August last year.
Engineers have also made a series of improvements to try to prevent the same thing happening again.
They new “landing feet” called the Auxiliary Landing System (ALS) which will deploy on landing and help protect the cockpit.
Airlander 10 is a 92 metre long aircraft and has only 3 metres of clearance on either side as it exits the doors of the its hangar.
The world's longest aircraft is designed to stay airborne for days with a 10,000kg payload, and travel to remote regions.
Its early use is likely to be for passenger tourist flights and interest has already been expressed.
