The Nulli Secundus ll, also known as British Army Dirigible No. 2, was partially built from the remains of the first Nulli Secundus (which is Latin for “second to none”) or British Army Dirigible No. 1. No. 1 was Britain’s first military aircraft, taking its first flight on September 10, 1907. Damaged (apparently) beyond repair in high winds, No. 1 was dismantled one month after its first flight, just five days after its first public appearance.
Like its predecessor, the Nulli Secundus ll served for only a short time. After three flights in July and August of 1908, it was scrapped.
