Fly in a Hot Air Balloon

COMPLETED BY 69

LISTED 816

The hot air balloon is the first 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, in a balloon created by the Montgolfier brothers.

The first hot-air balloon flown in the United States was launched from the Walnut Street Jail in Philadelphia on January 9, 1793 by the French aeronaut Jean Pierre Blanchard. Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than simply drifting with the wind are known as thermal airships.

It was a wonderful ride. Me and my sister started at 3pm over the Phoenix desert and floated into the sunset. It was a breathtaking view and the company onboard the balloon were in great spirits. An all around amazing experience. Hot air balloon bucket list item done..check!
