The Airlander 10 "The Flying bum"

AirLander 10, a 302-foot-long hybrid airship

The world’s largest aircraft unveiled plans for its interiors at Farnborough Airshow last week – and they look stunning.Nicknamed “The Flying Bum” because of its posterior-shaped hull.

We were excited back in 2016 to hear that the Airlander 10, a 302-foot-long hybrid airship, was finally taking its first test flight. Our enthusiasm, however, was tempered when on its second flight, the largest aircraft in the world went nose first into the grass near its hangar at a U.K. airfield shortly after take off. But today at the Farnborough Airshow, Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), the aerospace company behind the airship, unveiled what the interiors of a tourist-focused Airlander could look like and, well, consider us psyched again.

The interiors—conceived in collaboration with aviation and automobile design firm Design Q—look pretty plush, but if heights aren’t your thing, you might want to reconsider. The couches and bean bags look plenty comfortable, the full bar might serve as a crucial self-medicating hub, and spacious bedrooms look like they belong more in a five-star hotel than an aircraft. But—and this is where vertigo might come in—the cabin is practically covered in glass, including some of the floors, so you can really take in those views from 16,000 feet. Or, you know, have a panic attack. HAV says the Airlander 10 could carry up to 19 passengers on three-day expeditions, with full catering provided. The interior layout is also modular, too, meaning it can be customized depending on the nature of the journey.
