Hot Air Ballooning

and other fun stuff...


This "Balloon Flights" group of pages and pictures is in total disarray and needs much work. Many of the links are broken and many pictures are missing. The original pictures aren't available to me at the moment because of trouble with an old hard drive. 

I'll fix this stuff when I have the time. 

For now, enjoy the pictures.

I was the sole ground crew member for a wonderful evening flight taken by Brian and Sherry Vittorini with Dave Gidzinski pilot in command. The flight was quite long in distance and time. They took off from Dave's Aerodrome in Cedarville and landed on a farm access road in Vineland. See the link below to view the flight log and pictures.

The most recent balloon flight for which I crewed was on Friday evening, August 1, 2008.

Lift off was from Buck's Airport in Bridgeton and landing was off Morton Avenue in Vineland. Please check back to see the pictures taken of this flight.

Tuesday or Wednesday evening...promise.

Believe it or not, I have a patent on a hot air balloon shaped like a double-decker hamburger.

I have a patent on a hot air balloon shaped like a double-decker hamburger. I had to get a patent before MacDonald's would talk to me.

After getting the design patent for a hot air balloon shaped like a double-hamburger I built a prototype. Cheese wedges and 3-D sesame seeds.

This site will have more ballooning pictures added as time permits.
