As we found out from Iron Maiden official website.
There was a lot of interest generated by Bruce’s visit to the Hybrid Air Vehicle (HAV) hangar at Cardington Airfield, Bedford last week to see Airlander 10’s progress. The Guardian national newspaper covered the story and interviewed Bruce about his involvement with the project which you can read here.
In fact Bruce was so enthusiastic about HAV’s potential back in 2008 when he first heard about the idea from the late airship innovator and designer Roger Munk, he convinced Rod Smallwood to invest in it too!
HAV have now launched a Crowdfunder campaign to match a £3.4m government grant to get Airlander flying. If you’d like to find out more, or want to become involved in the Crowdfunder, click here.
