‘The History of Modern Ballooning’ - Presented by Don Cameron
Don Cameron is the leading expert in the world of Ballooning. Most of the balloons that you see in the sky have been designed and made by his company, Cameron Balloons, who have their offices and workshops near Bristol.
In his talk, Don will be explaining how ballooning had almost disappeared until the re-invention of modern hot-air ballooning, around 1960. Since that time, there has been a vast expansion of activity and a flowering of innovation. He will describe some of these developments, including balloons which have flown around the world, achieved records in the stratosphere, or simply decorated the skies with eye-catching shapes.
This fascinating talk promises many superb photographs, as well as being highly entertaining and informative.
