Work on the Airlander, at Hybrid Air Vehicles, will see the last of the major attachments - the fins and engines - completed in next few weeks.
The first fin was fitted in a matter of hours last week, using a crane usually used in rail engineering. The fin, measuring 9m by 11m, was secured to the hull with a series of cables and clamps.
Members of the public interested in viewing the airship in its Cardington Shed, can join the Airlander Club and apply for an exclusive hard-hat tour.
