BBM&L balloons at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

The British Balloon Museum & Library were asked if the Fiesta could inflate some of the special shaped balloon envelopes to show to the public over the three day Fiesta. The two balloons chosen had been donated to the museum – G-NUTS and G-BGOO.

Chris Dunkley’s take on the BBM&L Inflation Day at Lakeside Lodge, Pidley.

BBM&L Inflation Day a Success

The 12th BBM&L Inflation Day at Lakeside Lodge, Pidley near Huntingdon was a great success. Organised over months by Tim and Martyn Turner, and helped by teams of excellent people, the pilots, crew, BBM&L friends, LAASi members and the public were able to see and be involved in the inflation of 71 different balloons.

Hot-Air Balloons from the Museum collection to be inflated

The British Balloon Museum & Library are hoping to inflate many of their collection of old balloons at Inflation Day on May 19th. A museum that displays its collections for one day every seven hundred days is unusual, but has to be seen to be believed. Special shapes, unusual logos and balloons which have broken records or flown in big films.
