Hot Air Balloons Book Description:

From that famous day in June 1783 when the Montgolfier brothers launched their first balloon over Paris until the present, people have continued to marvel at the grace and ease with which man can ascend aloft and float through the sky. In addition to a history of early balloon flight, the book describes how balloons are made, how they fly, and what it takes to become a qualified pilot. It discuses as well the record breakers, competition flying, and the weird and wonderful balloon shapes that appear whenever balloon enthusiasts gather together. Lavishly illustrated with over 90 full-color photographs, this volume is a tribute to all balloonists past and present.
