Giant Floating Ass Shits Itself, Crashes

Ladies and gents, the world’s largest aircraft that also looks like a butt has crashed.

The buttplane took its maiden voyage last week, and everything was fine at first. But then the asscraft ate shit. Technically, this monstrosity is called the “Airlander 10,” and it’s as long as a football field. The bulbous beast was originally going to be used by the US military for surveillance purposes in the Middle East, but now it’s now floating around farms in England for final testing. It will eventually be used for research and transportation, as it can hold up to 22,000 pounds and stay in the air for five days.


After the plane crashed, a spokesperson for the floating butt told the BBC, “The flight went really well and the only issue was when it landed.” Well, you can’t really argue with that. It’s not clear why aircraft crashed, and according to the BBC, a witness reported that a line hanging from the plane hit a telephone phone. The company that built the aircraft denies this:

Why exactly the hulking balloon bounced off the ground remains unclear. But just watch it slowly plow into the ground while confused English people narrate the heartbreaking demise of the asscraft. Watch it.
