Use of hot air balloons in history
Copenhagen balloon park was an old military camp that appeared in 1880-s. Air balloons were used by the army to protect the city against air attacks. Using the balloons, army could obtain the data they would not get otherwise, for instance, they could check the efficiency of weapon. But during the WWII the Germans took over the camp. The facts from the history of hot air balloons:
· Hot air balloons were used for reconnaissance from the bird’s-eye-view. This is how the battlefield maps were prepared.
· Hot air balloons were used for scientific goals.
· The trips by hot air balloons turned into entertainment. In France it was even a fad in the 19th century.
Unforgettable experience of the air balloon trip
You can experience nervous trembling and huge excitement during the trip. There is no fear when the balloon flight begins. If you do not look out from the basket, it is hard even to understand that you fly up to the sky therefore there is no any fear. The feeling can be compared with the experience of standing on the open observation platform of some tall tower. Discomfort comes only when you look at the earth during the flight, and you realize that you are far away from the earth. There are a few hundred miles between you and the earth and only the plastic bottom of the basket keeps you afloat.
