Hi-Flyer Balloon, Abbey Park, Torquay
A closer view again of SX9063 : Torquay's Hi-Flyer. The balloon ascends to 400 feet, when it can be seen from across South Devon and Dartmoor. It can take 30 people at a go. The aerial theme echoes the following: "In July 1910 a memorable event graced this open space. From here Graham White made two flights in his Bi-plane over the combined Atlantic and Mediterranean Home fleets which had assembled in Torbay". LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
