Bum Note



Is there a problem with the world’s largest aircraft?

This week, the Airlander 10 took to the skies above Bedfordshire for its maiden voyage. The airship has been nicknamed “The Flying Bum” because of its bulbous exterior.

It uses helium to become airborne and can stay in the air for about five days. That’s the bit that worries me. It’s a balloon full of gas, so surely, as long as the gas stays inside the balloon, it should be able to sat airborne indefinitely, shouldn’t it? It must have a leak!

I’ve heard the noise a balloon makes when it leaks. Does that mean it not only looks like a bum, it sounds like one as well?

Craic on!
