Sdad, 159m is third party liability amount, nothing to do with the value of the machine. Also we should all bear in mind the "up to" preceeding the aforementioned 32m...

Watch Channel Four next Sunday (12th August) at 7pm as the Airlander features in the documentary series " Flying Across Britain by Arthur Williams" Great four-part documentary flying in a Piper Cub from airfield to airfield, with first part last night.

The prototype won't be rebuilt, but full production seems likely :-

They have nowhere to assemble them (having been booted out from Cardington) and no prototype/demonstrator, having failed to secure it properly one windy day. Do they have any money? They don't appear to have any customers.

How on earth do you deduce that 'full production seems likely?'

The BBC article is a PR puff piece on a slow news day, nothing more.
