Built by the University of Sussex Ballooning Society this was built and first registered in 1968 and cancelled as withdrawn from use in 1984. It is in poor condition, disintegrating badly, and was mostly returned to its bag by people picking up pieces. Having not been seen for decades, it did however attract a lot of attention from the enthusiasts present. It is unlikely that it will ever be taken out again.

Hot air balloons tend to have a limited life, around 400 hours, as the envelope becomes porous to hot air. This example, built in 1981 was cancelled in 1998. Many are preserved by the British Balloon Museum and Library and this is seen at a tethered inflation.

Once the symbol of Robertson's Jams in the UK this was the first special shaped balloon which set a trend for such things. It was sacrificed by the company due to Political Correctness but fortunately survives as part of the British Balloon Museum and Library collection. It made a tethered inflation at Pidley, Cambridgeshire and still seemed to be loved by the youngsters who were there.
