Night Features Balloons
Thanks to Capt. Peter Miller we had a very interesting
aerospace presentation by Scott McClinton of
Sky Cab Balloons.
Scott gave a very interesting and informative presentation. He was going to set
up a hot air balloon but the weather did not cooperate. He did bring out a
basket so everyone could look at it and ask questions. It is actually very heavy
and is pretty crowded sharing room with the propane tanks. Scott has traveled
throughout the world conducting and flying in balloon events. We all have a much
greater appreciation for what you all do. Lastly, he recounted a story from
Georgia where a balloon was lost and the Civil Air Patrol worked with him and
his group to find the downed balloon. Unfortunately, the pilot did not survive
the crash. Thanks so much Scott for taking your time and visiting with us.
