Before balloonists started using petrol driven fans, someone, nicknamed 'Cremation Charlie' had to stand inside using a stick to hold the fabric up as the buners were used to heat it. When he could no longer stand the heat, the burner was turned off and he got out, Dave Hooper from the Dublin Balloon Club is seen here in that dangerous role at Wollaton Park. Thanks to Robin Macey for the information

Whilst the CAA lists this as a hot air ballooon it is evidently not. Named Omega II it had a volume of 590 cubic metres and, If my memory serves me correctly, it used coal gas. It was written off on 28th February 1978. Seen at Wollaton Park.
