Balloons

2008.06.24
pixel
This Remax balloon was kept on the ground for people to view after the launching of the other seven.
pixel
The second Remax was the first to launch. They had a really fast crew.
pixel
This is the G-Daddy as it's being inflated for launch. The name came from acquiring the balloon on the day the owner became a grandfather, hence G-Daddy.
pixel
This is almost ready to launch.
pixel
There are three crew on the G-Daddy as it is almost ready to go.
pixel
Just after the tether is released.

New balloons cost in the 25-35K range. Used can be purchased from about 5K to 15K depending on the age and condition of the balloon.

Another crew waiting to launch.

Don't remember the name but it had a crew of two women. One was the owner of the balloon
pixel
The other commercial balloon to launch was the Mayflower. The ship on the sides was three dimensional.
pixel
The Mayflower about to launch. Note how the ship stands out. Cool but nothing like the 3-D on the next balloon.

The Mayflower in flight.

I think it's called the Captain Jack although he doesn't look much like the Captain Jack logo.
pixel
He may have had a little too much to drink with that bloodshot eye.
pixel
Captain Jack headding into the sun.

I got in on the last launch at a small balloon fest. There were only eight balloons present and seven launched. One Remax balloon was kept on the ground for people to get a closere look at.
