The first airship to ever be built in the province will be unveiled to the public today at the University of Manitoba.

The large aerial craft was built by Buoyant Aircraft Systems International (BASI) and ISO Polar, a non-profit research institute. The craft is expected to encourage the development of airship technology for sustainable transportation and logistics applications in the North, according to the university.

The single pilot, 80-foot airship will be unveiled in the atrium of the Engineering and Information Technology Complex at 2 p.m. on the U of M’s Fort Garry campus.
