Taken in the UK I would presume, classic Mk VII Balloon in flight

This was taken presumably at Newport. They were enormous things to deal with. The

small grey concrete squares in view over the grass contain a metal ring for bedding

down the balloon when not flying. Note the tarpaulin on which the balloon had to be

kept on to prevent punctures from thorns etc.

This was Cluckie and John

.

This sis the crew room at Newport love the handlebar moustache!! When in doubt brew up some tea.
