The balloons pictured below all registered to attend the Inflation Day and we take our hats off to all the pilots and crews who had the date firmly written in their diaries.
It is seldom we get the chance to see these historic balloons and we send our thanks to Sandy Mitchell and Tim Turner for the photographs.
We had ten Hoppers registered up to the date of cancellation, otherwise you may be sure we would have seen many more on the day.
We were looking forward to celebrating 40 Years of the Museum Line-Up – balloons registered in the Museum’s birth year 1979, mostly Museum balloons plus one or two others …
The Inflation Day is traditionally a good day to raise funds for the Museum so we are thinking of ways of boosting the kitty whilst still having fun.
And of course, there is always the DONATION PAGE 🙂
