The flight deck of the world's largest aircraft has been repaired following a crash on only its second ever flight.

The Airlander airship, which was built in Bedfordshire, was damaged in August last year and has been out of action ever since.

The flight deck instrument panels, overhead console and wiring have had to be re-installed. Test flights should begin again soon.
