Famous Balloon Quote:
The winds have welcomed you with softness,
The sun has greeted you with it's warm hands,
You have flown so high and so well,
That God has joined you in laughter,
And set you back gently into
The loving arms of Mother Earth.
— Anon, known as 'The Baloonists Prayer', believed to have been adapted from an old Irish sailors' prayer.

The balloon is inflated using a gasoline powered fan. Once the balloon is fully packed with air, the pilot turms on the burner and heats the air in the balloon, causing it to rise. Passengers then board the aircraft, and your flight begins!
