Welcome to our weekly round-up from the weird and wonderful world of AvGeekery!

This week we find Wally – and not just the once we might add! We also catch up with some spectacular aircraft, take a couple of dips in the drink and make a bid for a second-hand helicopter.

In Blast from the Past we take a look at some not very sharp shooting by the USAF!

Airlander 10 – World’s Largest Aircraft First Flight

At 92m this is 19m longer than an A380 so we can’t wait to see these in our skies!

You don’t see it in this video but the reason for this having the nickname of the flying bum is pretty obvious when viewed from the front.

We suspect that the silly nickname won’t prevent this aircraft from having a great future.

A very nice video of this unusual aircraft. That pod on the side is used to test the third engine!

Currently, the aircraft is testing very high-speed onboard internet services.

Soon you’ll be able to catch up with AVGeek weekly wherever you are!

Could we soon see helicopters land at airport car parks? Even with their prices, it’ll still be cheaper than landing fees!
