On the 19th September 1783 scientist Pilatre De Rozier launched the first hot air balloon called 'Aerostat Reveillon'. Onboard were a sheep, a duck and a rooster and the balloon stayed in the air for a grand total of 15 minutes before crashing back to the ground.
In 1978, the Double Eagle II was the first balloon to cross the Atlantic, another major benchmark in the History of Ballooning. After many unsuccessful attempts this mighty Ocean had finally been crossed. It was a helium filled model,and it carried 3 passengers, Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Anderson and Larry Newman. They set a new flight duration time at 137 hours.
