Glass-bottomed hot air balloon

Standing on the glass floor in Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower is one thing, but a glass floor in a balloon basket is a very different prospect. The maiden flight took place on 12 August and this site has some good pictures and an impressive video clip.

The balloon, in the form of a dragon with a giant pallet on its back, is pretty remarkable too.
