Flying in a Hot Air Balloon
by Cheryl Walsh Bellville
A recreational pilot, Cheryl Walsh Bellville describes what it's like to fly in a hot air balloon. She explains how the balloon is prepared for flight and how it is maneuvered during flight. Later, she becomes a member of a balloon chase crew, and describes how the balloon is tracked from the ground and how the balloon is packed up after landing. She also provides a brief history of ballooning and an overview of an American balloon rally. Illustrated with her own photos, this is a good book for anyone interested in hot air ballooning.
