The Airlander 10 airship, based in Bedfordshire, has been officially named ‘The Martha Gwyn’ by the Duke of Kent…
His Royal Highness – an aviation enthusiast and Pilot – spent this morning at the historic Cardington Hangar 1, taking a simulated journey in the ‘Flight Trainer’.
He also toured the Flight Deck and Cabin, along with a select group of guests who attended the ceremony.
A Guard of Honor from Shortstown Primary School, Cotton End Primary School and Shortstown Air Cadets greeted The Duke on arrival.
“The Martha Gwyn” named after Hybrid Air Vehicles’ Chairman and largest shareholder Philip Gwyn’s wife. This was a complete surprise for Martha, who attended with her husband and Company Chairman, Philip Gwyn. Martha said she was both shocked and delighted by this honor.
