Ever wondered at the sight of a Hot air balloon?


The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. The first untethered manned hot air balloon flight was performed by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d'Arlandes on November 21, 1783, in Paris, France.  Jean  later died when his balloon crashed near Wimereux in the Pas-de-Calais during an attempt to fly across the English Channel.
