Looks like a blimp

That’s because it is :P

Orlly but it says it’s an aircraft. Do blimps count as aircrafts?

Yeah it counts as one

MaxSez: more like a Dirigible / Airship w/3 major cells. In flight testing. Telegraph Article has video’s.

What’s a Dirigible Airship

I won a competition at Farnborough Air Show to visit it. It’s really cool!

MaxSez: An airship is a powered, steerable aircraft that it is inflated with a gas that is lighter than air.

What is a Dirigible?

“Airship” and “dirigible” are synonyms; a dirigible is any lighter-than-air craft that is powered and steerable, as opposed to free floating like a balloon.

The word “dirigible” is often associated with large rigid airships but the term does not come from the word “rigid” but from the French verb diriger (“to steer”).

Rigid airships (like the Hindenburg), semi-rigid airships (like the Zeppelin NT), and blimps (like the Goodyear blimp) are all dirigibles. (Google)

Airlander is the manufacturer or is built by another company?

Copy paste skills?

Maybe it could operate from the GoodYear blimp base in SoCal!
