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.

Hot Air Balloons tend to have a short lifespan, typically around 400 flying hours as the fabric becomes porous to hot air. Many older examples in the UK are preserved by the British Balloon Museum and Library and inflated but not flown every two years. This example, though built in 1979 does seem to still be airworthy.
