B is for Balloon

My husband and I were student balloon pilots. We never took the final test because it was expensive and we knew we'd never own a balloon. Still, we had a lot of fun flying and learning about it.

This was 'our' balloon Flagship Lorraine Beau, so named for the flags at her equator and because she took he first flight in Lorraine France.





This is Dawn Patrol.  Flagship is at the end.  This was the only time she flew Dawn Patrol

hat a beautiful response to the prompt :)
Thanks! It was a fun time and it now seems like a lifetime ago.
...... I WANT TO BE A STUDENT BALLOON PILOT!!
I have to admit, it was a lot of fun. I think I liked crewing the most, though.
Ohhh, how wonderful! What a unique and fun thing to learn.
Thanks! It was a lot of fun and it gave me a whole new appreciation for clouds and power lines.
That second image, especially is truly stunning ... lots of B's!
Thanks. it's hard to photograph all five lit at the same time. Once they get up, it's nearly impossible to get them all together. It was a fun time.
What a fascinating thing to have done.
That second photo is stunning.
Thanks! I wish it was a better shot of ours for Dawn Patrol, but it was a matter of timing.
