Airships Arabia's trip to the Paris Airshow was followed by a hop across the English Channel and a fascinating day at Hybrid Air Vehicles' facility at Cardington, Bedfordshire. Our Commercial Director, Pete Wallace, and our Managing Director, Gregory Gottlieb, spent the morning in discussions with HAV's CEO, Steve McGlennan, followed by an extended tour of the Airlander 10.
Seeing the aircraft during flight testing, out on the airfield, was quite different from our last tour in the hangar several months ago. It was most useful to see her in an operational environment. We were most grateful for the tour given us by HAV's Alex Travell, Head of Ground Operations, and Philippa Murrey, Communications & Marketing Executive. Lots of photos were taken. Here are some of those that we have permission to share . . .
