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.
A classic picture of a RAF Launch..
