Shortstown Heritage

Airlander 2 condensed .docx

  The Airlander 10 on August 8th thank you to Alan Kenny for this fantastic photo!

Yes it really has happened at last the Airlander has come out! The level of interest in The Airlander has reached saturation point with news coverage ranging from local, national and international press and TV. The signs have been there for a long time, back in March yellow lines suddenly appeared on the road immediately outside the sheds to deter cars parking on the main road. In Shortstown the aircraft‘s progress has always generated great interest and this is a special time for us.
