The world's largest aircraft has crashed as it returned to its base at Cardington Airfield in Bedfordshire this morning.

The Airlander 10 suffered cockpit damage as it landed from its second flight.

It's part-airship, part-aeroplane and is a whopping 302ft long (92m).

The aircraft only took to the skies for the first time a week ago after months of tests.

A spokesmen for Hybrid Air Vehicles said they're "debriefing following the second test flight this morning".

All crew are safe and there are currently no reports of any injuries.
