New Balloon Inflation & Repair Station Preview - 3/15/04

Keith inflated his brand-new 73k experimental envelope this fine, cold Sunday morning while I played with my newly-gotten FireFly 105 with the s5.0DB basket (the envelope needs a little work, as you can see in at least one photo). After Keith packed his beautiful new toy away, everyone jumped into my basket and set some sort of record with 6 passengers plus myself comfortably stuffed within!

After we were finished with the balloon fun and ensuing breakfast, I shot off to Pennsylvania to check out my new repair station. Oh, the responsibilities...

These are all potential designs for the rebuilt 105 envelope
