Hot Air Ballooning

A hot air balloon consists of a bag called the envelope that is capable of containing heated air. Suspended beneath is a gondola or wicker basket (in some long-distance or high-altitude balloons, a capsule), which carries passengers and (usually) a source of heat, in most cases an open flame. The heated air inside the envelope makes it buoyant since it has a lower density than the relatively cold air outside the envelope. As with all aircraft, hot air balloons cannot fly beyond the atmosphere.

Looking at Hot Air Balloning in Magaliesburg... Then the silence of flight is punctuated only by the occasional blast of the powerful burners and the faint call of a bird or animal far beneath. Hot air ballooning in the cradle.
