Plans For The Construction Of A Hot Air BalloonReturn to: In Game Books
First you must have a wicker balloon basket made, large enough to carry several passengers. Then you’ll need a big iron cauldron, to hold a fire to generate the hot air. Next you must have a huge bag sewn out of silk, to hold the hot air in. Lastly, get enough rope to tie the balloon securely to the basket. Once you’ve gathered all of these together, use these plans to assemble them. When flying your balloon, you’ll find that a ship’s anchor makes the best ballast, and is also useful for stopping the balloon where and when you wish.
