Everyone is taking the mickey out of the world's biggest air liner for very obvious reasons

With input from Independant.co.uk

The world’s biggest aircraft will be tested over the UK over the course of the following month.

The Airliner 10 is the length of a football pitch and is a mix between a plane, an airship and a helicopter.

It was named after its ability to carry 10 tonnes, it measures 92 metres and can carry 50 people and reach a top speed of 91mph despite being 43m wide and 26m tall.

It can stay airborne for three weeks unmanned and can operate in extreme temperatures, making it a possible search and rescue operation vehicle.

It is usually featured in stories regarding construction and testing developments with images like the above photo, taken on 28 February 2014.

As a result social media reacts to the latest developments on the craft exactly as you'd 
predict:
