Durham Balloon Show

I watched as many balloons took to the skies over Durham City, I watched as many colours reached for the heavens as I staired in aww at there beauty. Balloons from many countries were competing that day all shapes and sizes. Balloons are filled with hot air and with it a woven basket hangs down from the bottom of the balloon so people can climb in and manager it better whilst it is in flight. It had been many years since the wright brother took off to the sky's on there first voyage in the kitty hawk. since then man has enjoyed many a flight crossing continents in his quest to make the planet ever smaller and within his reach. The Avro Anson, was originally designed as a coastal reconnaissance aircraft, and was derived from a 6-seat passenger airliner, the Anson 652. The design team was lead by Roy Chadwick, the designer of the Lancaster. The Anson ended up serving the RAF for over 30 years.
