Sky...
Dad was a tailgunner over the krautsland with the 8th.
He made it back in good shape, no longer physicaly with us though.
We liked the aircraft look and needed a name when we're out on the road feeling free...fit perfecty for us.





Move along...move along...
Croud control, so cool!




I gotta start watching more cartoons, cause I have no idea...

This 'The Balloon Guy'
You will see him on TV each day.


During the competition drop, they fly by low and try to hit targets laid on a grid.


The 'Box' was perfect Tuesday for this...
Balloons could fly south by staying low...
The rise and fly north to get another chance.
Was strange to see your fav balloon disapear off over town, then look up and there he is again.

The Gas Guys

Now these are the long distance balloons.
They stay up for days vs hours for hot air type.
On the left is Helium......................Right side are Hydrogen
$4000............................................. ................$600
Cost to fill



Helium


Hydrogen


Hydrogen






Each of the gas balloons had to lauch from the same spot.
So they would float over to platform, them take off.
Wind was about zero...and they went straight up.
They also launch at dark vs dawn for the hot air type

Great pics Klattu. After seeing yours, it makes me wonder if the FCU crew were even awake during the day! What's with the outboard?

Open Invitation

All you Buckaroos and Buckarettes are welcome to park it and talk Airstream at my place in Estancia. Near Rt 66. Just get off I-40 at Moriarty (east of Albuquerque) and head south 15 miles to Estancia. Brick house with the Airstream.

Klattu, Great pics, especially of your rig! Viewing them is starting to get my western wanderlust juices flowing again.

Love the big sky country and dry climate. Thanks for posting 'em all!
