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

In the late 1970s and up to the late 1980s advertising balloons such as these were very popular, probably a tax-deductible way to fly. None of these three balloons still fly, G-SAFE on the left, owned by the Derbyshire Building Society and G-NBSI on the right owned by the Nottingham Building Society.
